New Tucson parking meters too tall, resident says

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson resident says the city’s 1,500 newly-installed parking meters are too tall, making them hard to use for people in wheelchairs.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (http://bit.ly/1EAc0dM ) that Tucson resident Jim Diller filed a complaint last week with city Americans with Disabilities Act coordinator Matthew Larsen.

Diller says he has seen some keypads on Tucson meters as high as 56 inches from the ground. He says ADA standards require them to be no more than 48 inches high.

Park Tucson administrator Donovan Durband says the city was working to address the problem before the complaint was filed. He says the city is working on a response to the complaint.

He says staff members thought only meters at designated handicapped parking spaces had to meet the ADA standards.
