A Town In Canada Has Banned Doorknobs

Doorknob

Starting in March of 2014, doorknobs will no longer be allowed in Vancouver, Nova Scotia, Canada. The move is being made to make things more accessible to the handicapped, the injured, and the elderly.

In place of doorknobs will be a door lever which is apparently easier to open for those groups. I was all ready to be upset when I saw the Slate.com headline, but I can’t get too worked up over a change that helps the elderly and handicapped. It’s part of a movement called “universal design” that Slate.com points out includes lower light switches, higher outlets, and wider doors, stairs, and hallways.
