Hi guys, I happen to like accessible drive through ATM machines because
I occasionally walk through  the drive through outside my work place.
Obviously not when there is a lot of traffic but I don't think it is
illegal where I am so I occasionally do it.  Also, If a bank is going to
by 2 atms, they might as well get the same accessible model.  I am not a
proponent of accessible hot and cold tap indicators or Braille flush
here symbols on a toilet but some things just work better with some
accessibility.  
Regards...Rich

The Braille is on those machines and other ridiculous places, because we
forced government and industry, to put them there, under the threat of
media coverage or law suits.  I remember the NFB going from store to
store, in downtown Buffalo, threatening store owners with exposure, if
they didn't make their rest rooms, handicap friendly, and yet, where
their offices were, in one of our government buildings, they didn't say
anything about the inaccessibility to wheelchair bound civilians.  I was
an officer of the NFB and resigned, when I saw how the misuse of power
was becoming a disease, and infecting the organization on a national
level.
I'm always, Frank  Check out my line of clothing for blind nudists.  I
try to stay competitive in the cost per custom made garments, but must
adjust the rates, as the dollar fluctuates and supply and demand of the
finer metallic fabrics, demands fee changes, accordingly.  Also, my new
transparent line, will be available, for spring, at drastically reduced
prices.  For more information, go to my web site or Email me directly.
remember What you don't see, is what we sell.
