Which room for handicaped people ?

Which room for handicaped persons ?

Which room do we give to handicaped people in our societies ? I used handicap signs to explore this subject in different places of France.

I think the place where the sign is put tells a lot about the relationship which we maintain with handicap. I didn't try to look for strange places but normal ones and I was so surprised to usually find those signs near garbage cans, on creepy walls, in isolated places...

The more I travel and I walk in cities, the more I see the huge work that is needed to be done to make handicaped people a better access to a normal way of life.
