Letter: ‘Inaccurate to say that the mall discriminates…”

Someone’s counting

I sympathize with Effie Fourakis’ frustration [Letters, May 1] with the difficulty of finding an empty disabled parking stall at Northgate Mall, but it’s inaccurate to say that the mall discriminates against people with disabilities. The number and locations of disabled parking stalls at Northgate (or anywhere else in California) is mandated by California Title 24. Northgate could choose to provide more stalls than the state requires, but in my experience there are a fair number of disabled parking stalls that are rarely if ever used. At the Manzanita Park and Ride, for example, there are, if memory serves, eight, and I’ve never seen more than one of them occupied.
