ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) – The old, familiar handicapped signs may soon be a thing of the past.
The State Senate passed a measure that would change the traditional image of a wheelchair bound character used on ramps and accessible parking to show a character in motion. The bill also prohibits the use of the word “handicapped” from being displayed on signs.
The legislation has already passed in the Assembly. It is now being sent to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for consideration.
It would only apply to signs created after the bill is signed into law.
