ADA SignsWhat are ADA signs?

Americans with Disability Act (ADA) legislation was written back in the 1990s to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities. The Act requires that all business owners provide adequate “ADA signs” (i.e. signage designed according to ADA stipulations) to make their buildings, products, and service accessible to everyone.
