Abled-bodied people, please do not use the accessible toilet
- as a make up room
- as a changing room to switch from your gym clothes to your work clothes (or whatever clothes!)
- because you didn’t fancy standing in queue for the other – non-accessible – toilets
- as a storage room
- because you didn’t fancy walking a little bit further to the other toilets.
Disabled people need these toilets and often don’t have a choice! In many areas, accessible toilets are far and few between. It often involves a long search or a detour to finally find an accessible one. And then it’s all the more frustrating to find it occupied by abled bodied people.
