Caltrans Ada Settlement Agreement
“We`ve always tried to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act,” said Ronald Beals, Caltrans` chief counsel. “But we knew there were needs there and we wanted to do our best to work with the community.

The class action behind the transaction was closely followed by local officials and powerful municipal organizations such as the National League of Cities and the League of California Cities. The groups have long argued that such complaints unnecessarily burden troubled cities that are already struggling to meet the access requirements of the federal state and the Länder. In the city where “everyone drives,” sidewalks and other housing often seemed like a posteriori thought for people who aren`t in the car.
