intrusion, not more
30 September 2004 - Orange County Register
Assemblyman Haynes posed some very good, poignant questions to the
citizens of California and the United States. Everyone who has any
interest in the upcoming or future elections needs to ruminate on
those questions and their personal feelings toward government intrusion
into their personal and work lives.
particularly egregious intrusion has been the Americans with Disabilities
Act, which forces privately-owned businesses to provide disabled
access in strictly prescribed ways rather than allowing them to
voluntarily serve their customers, disabled and otherwise, in the
most efficient way possible.
intrusive regulations have allowed one individual, Jarek Molski,
to sue over 200 small businesses since 2001 alone for alleged breaches
of the ADA - technicalities all. This profiteer’s latest triumph
has been shutting down Roy’s Drive-In, a 50-year-old fixture in
Salinas. Its crime? Not having ADA-required ramps, even though Roy’s
offers carhop service right to customers’ car windows.
