30 Times People Tried Installing Wheelchair Ramps But Failed Miserably

Published 5 years ago

In many countries, modern building regulations require newly-built buildings to be accessible to handicapped people – that means having wheelchair ramps. Now, for us, it seems completely understandable. After all, how else would people in wheelchairs get into buildings? Some architects, however, see it as a nuisance and go out of their ways to do the bare minimum required to make buildings handicapped-friendly, resulting in some nonsensical and outright dangerous designs.

People online are sharing the most ridiculous accessibility designs they have come across and some of them are so carelessly designed, they’re almost insulting. From ramps that end with steps to ones that are as steep as rollercoasters, check out the worst cases of architects not caring about handicap access in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
