A broken top bottle shop in Colorado Springs is facing a lawsuit for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. The owner of the company says that it was an accident and he didn’t know about the law. But, does ignorance excuse him?
The Broken Top Bottle Shop has been located at 2710 W. Colorado Ave since 1972, making them one of the oldest businesses in town. However, recently they have faced some opposition from residents who are claiming that their store violates ADA requirements because there is no wheelchair access to any part of their building.
“The Broken Top Bottle Shop is a brick-and-mortar store that does not have any accessible parking or entrances for people with disabilities,” said Colorado Springs resident Becky Keen. “I am deeply concerned about the safety of this situation and what will happen if someone who cannot walk shows up.”
The owner, John Smith, claims he didn’t know about ADA requirements because his father ran the shop before him. The Americans with Disabilities Act has been around since 1990 so it’s hard to believe that an entire generation was unaware of its existence! He says instead that when he bought the building in 1972 from his dad, there were no regulations concerning accessibility for businesses like theirs. However, broken top bottle shop must now comply with these regulations in order to operate, and has been given until Wednesday (January 24th) to do so.
The issue here is not only the lack of ADA compliance but also broken top bottle shop’s focus on alcohol sales which creates a dangerous situation for everyone around them. “There are three liquor stores within a mile radius,” said Keen. “No one needs another.” It would be much safer if this business were required to sell something that didn’t have such an intoxicating effect on its customers! But then again, it’s difficult for government officials keep up with all these new regulations- at least Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers agrees they need more time before any action is taken against broken top bottle shop.
Keen points out that
the lack of parking lot lighting is a huge safety concern for the broken top bottle shop on Friday and Saturday nights.
“We’ve had shootings, people getting mugged,” she said. “It’s not safe at night.”
