I always wondered how people with disabilities fill up gas and how I'd be able to do it one day. If you drive, how do you fill your gas?
Here's an article I stumbled across that discusses fuel access laws for the disabled (USA).
Millions of disabled Floridians will benefit or be hurt by legislation that seeks to standardize how gas stations assist handicapped drivers. New legislation sets a statewide standard.
J.R. Harding is a quadriplegic, he's been unable to buy gas for all but six months of the last 24 years. That's when Leon County adopted an ordinance to require gas stations to install buttons so attendants can help the handicapped.
"And I know they can help me during those days when the manager and the owner said so," said J.R. Harding.
Other counties have adopted similar requirements. That's sparking a fierce debate at the state Capitol. The fight's really over whether counties that already have an ordinance get to keep it or if the state law makes the local ordinances obsolete.
