Brickbat: Easy Access


Ramp sign
Thomas Dutour /

Officials in Duncanville, Texas, have ordered a family to remove a wheelchair ramp from the outside of their home. The ramp was built by the Texas Ramp Project, which builds ramps for those in need. The group did not obtain a permit, which city officials say is necessary for safety. But the Texas Ramp Project says it has built more than 15,000 ramps across the state with no safety issues.
