While Starbucks is only peripheral to this discussion, I want to call your attention to a recent crash at a Starbucks in Vestavia Hills, Alabama injured three people inside the store. Nothing unique about the crash, the injuries, or the cause. What I wanted to point out is that in this case was a very clear photo of the scene which clearly illustrates how useless wheel stops are. Dangerous, ADA non-compliant, and useless -- why does anyone ever install wheel stops?
Thanks to WNCT 9 for their coverage. See the coverage and additional photos HERE
So Starbucks -- and every other retail and restaurant chain -- please take a look at the facts. Three people were injured at this store who were completely unprotected by wheel stops.
And it didn't have to be that way.
