Profits before the People?
In many Carparks, barriers are built for electronic charging. The barriers are made extremely long to prevent motorcyclists to pass. The kerbs are also made very high and no slopes for handicapped access. On the right, there is just a barrier and no one can pass. Cyclists also find it hard to pass these barriers.
To earn more profits from Motorcyclists, $0.65 per entry, they simply created more barriers for handicapped access. There are many Handicapped lots, in the indoor carpark, but there are absolutely no slopes to allow entry. Perhaps if the people on wheelchairs can do the limbo rock, they can pass under these barriers.
In order to make profits from the motorcycles, have HDB decided to remove access to the handicapped as well?
