A personal blog by Ackworth born Gerald England who married a Lancashire lass, went West and now lives in Cheshire.
I'd agree it was bizarre if health and safety legislation had been cited to support the rule, but a risk assessment, probably a fire safety risk assessment, could reasonably come to the conclusion that a limit was appropriate, and then derive such a limit. You could always ask for their rationale; it would be interesting to find out.
The really irritating part of this is that you presumably have to go in the lift up to the coffee lounge to see how many wheelchairs are already there.
So if the sign is in the lift, does that mean that you still have to get into the lift and go up to the coffee lounge to count the number of wheel chairs?
i've never seen anything like that before!
This place needs a wheelchair flash-mob to test it out.
Never seen a sign like this. Perhaps it has to do with the number of wheel chairs that can fit into the elevator?
Thats odd Gerald I as you know am wheelchair bound and find it ludicrous why not ban fat people with walking sticks or mums with pushchairs
