My husband and I just took a car trip, 1800 miles each way. I am a person with limited mobility. I use a walked, with wheels and a seat that folds down over a basket. I found that a lot of places that have a rest-room stall that is marked "Handicapped" isn't really. Many of them are so narrow you have to back in because there is not room to turn around after you are in. Almost all of them have doors that open in. This does not make sense to me. Have any of you encounter these problems? Did you complain about them? I did attempt a couple of times to store personel, one was very unconcerned and unreceptive. The other was very nice, respectful and made a note of what I was saying.

all the time, no where is equipped properly for the handicapped, though I will admit, must handicapped bathroom stalls I have used is much bigger than the average stall which is good.

Yes, bigger does help. One place we stopped, as I had peeked into the room to see how it was I knew I couldn't manage on my own and my husband had to come in and help me. My husband is a very very nice man, willing to do anything to help me, so he simply stepped in and we managed. As we left the room a woman who was standing waiting snarled something or other at him, [I didn't hear it clearly] but my dear one just smiled at her and said "we all do what we can". I asked him what she had said and he said don't worry about the petty people. So we went on our way.
