Does anyone work for a company that ensures that there are handicapped accessible ramps at every entrance?

Actually, business typically focus first on one accessible route, then goods and services, bathrooms,and last accessibility of items with-in their place of business. The reason there is typically one route (besides ADA standards), which I prefer, is that usually a business will take the time to design it correctly, including,; parking spaces, curb cuts, ramp slopes or cross slopes, doors and access/regress routes, and sign-age. This is preferable to a lot of routes which only partially meet ADA standards. There are a number of leaders in the industry like Costco or Lowe's so they are out there, you just need to find one that fits you best. I found a small auto shop (3 people) the other day that was completely accessible including all aspects of the bathroom! For more ADA 2010 standards see my site at www.mooreaccess.com
