the wrong location, it offered little help to those who use battery operated scooters like Mr. Skeard's. After he pushes the button to open the door, it is closed again before he can get his scooter maneuvered around it to go inside to check his mailbox.
Mr. Skeard said he voiced those concerns to the town council. He was told that the message was passed along to the RCMP, but he has since witnessed police cars pass vehicles parked on sidewalks and nothing is done about it. He said as long as people aren't warned about their parking habits, Lv Belt New
Some establishments have made attempts to address accessibility issues, like the post office on Main Street. But the attempts have failed or were poorly planned, according Ferragamo Belt Big Buckle to Mr. Skeard.
Another issue involves people parking on sidewalks. He said several out of town transport trucks have made it a habit of parking on the sidewalks closest to business doors for periods of time while conducting business, prohibiting passage for people using scooters.
Mr. Skeard has spoken out about accessibility issues at local businesses several times in the past, but he said little has changed as a result of it.

He complained recently to Coleman's Furniture World about the concrete step in front of the store. Once management listened and asked what might make it better for him, he explained that a little ready mix concrete would provide a slope allowing easy passage for his scooter through the door. The fix took about 20 minutes and little expense, according to Mr. Skeard. He recommends others businesses that don't know how to make their property wheelchair accessible, should visit the furniture store to see how it's done.
Mr. Skeard said he has been forced to wait up to 20 minutes for a truck driver to remove his vehicle from the sidewalk. He added many local cars tend to park on the sidewalks as well.

Mr. Skeard also sent a letter to the Town of Port aux Basques this past spring regarding street lighting. He asked for a light to be placed on the corner of Main Street and Citadel Street, where he said it becomes quite dark evening time, especially in the fall. His request was not granted, and he believes his correspondence is shelved.
"Do they realize how difficult they are making it for us?" asked Mr. Skeard.
"Do they realize that people with disabilities help keep their stores open by spending their money there?" he asked.
The increase use of dirt bikes and the manner in which they are driven is also a growing concern. Living near the top of the one way portion of Citadel Street, Mr. Skeard said he often sees dirt bikes, and vehicles, going up the hill the illegally, often at high speeds and increasing the potential for an accident.
Mr. Skeard said he understands that not all businesses can make the necessary adjustments to their properties to make them wheelchair accessible because they are too close to the sidewalk or because of other issues. But, he said, there are many others that can make the adjustment with little investment of money and time.
Port aux Basques Roger Skeard says disabled people have difficulties getting around Port aux Basques and local driving habits is worrisome for people like him who use scooters.
He wants the business community to understand how hard it is for people in wheelchairs and scooters, and also for seniors who use walkers and canes, to get into stores that are not wheelchair accessible.
One of his biggest concerns is driver behaviour at crosswalks. Mr. Skeard uses crosswalks every day that he is outside on his scooter. While some people stop for him to cross, many don't. In fact, he said some drivers increase speed and cut across him to get ahead of him instead of stopping and allowing him time to cross.
"It seems like people don't think about the disabled people and what they have to go through to get around. They don't give it any consideration."
the practice will continue until one day someone is seriously hurt.
