Abstract:In “How Long Must We Wait,” Mike Oliver and I chronicle the mistreatment of people with impairments by disabling transportation systems, and how these restricting policies and services limit access to such simple freedoms as getting together with friends and colleagues. Ill-treatment of disabled people occurs so frequently as to become mundane. We learn to expect that each new day might unfold into an exercise in frustration, ignorance, or maltreatment. If we complained every time we experienced such behavior, we would exhaust ourselves. Anyway, would our grievances be heard?
