Leon County Makes Pumping Gas Easier for Disabled Drivers
Date:8/8/2014

Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

This month, pumping gas in Leon County has gotten a whole lot easier for anyone living with a disability. Advanced Driving Systems is proud to announce that those with a legal, disabled placard visibly displayed in/on their vehicle can now pull up to area Leon County gas stations and get someone on staff to come out and pump gas for them.

“This is a dignified way to get assistance from the people who run the store,” Advanced Driving Systems client J.R. Harding said.

Harding, a quadriplegic himself, has been after local and state leaders to install local phone numbers and the new fuel call buttons at gas stations for the last six years.

The Leon County Commission finally heard Harding’s pleas in October 2013 and passed an ordinance requiring local phone numbers and fuel call buttons to be installed at all new gas stations, as well as all stations that remodel within the county. For gas stations already in existence, only those that can offer gas service to 10 cars or more at the same time have to comply with the new Leon County ordinance. Harding said that is roughly half of the gas stations within the county, approximately 95 stations in all.

Hours for this new service vary from station to station; many will offer 24-hour service. Each call button comes with a sign posting hours of service, as well as a local phone number patrons can call if they are not able to press the button itself. However, if there is ever any doubt to the hours of operation for a fuel call button, just press the button itself and a recording will come on telling what hours services are offered.

The state passed a similar law to the Leon County ordinance in July 2014, requiring all self-service gas stations in Florida, by 2016, have a local phone number installed, so a person with a disability can call and access someone to pump their gas. Harding is happy to see the state take
