Section 1 of the bill requires a car sharing program operating in
the state to ensure, on and after January 1, 2028, that for each shared car
available through the program, the program shall indicate the car's
accessibility modifications. A car sharing program that makes a
reasonable effort to obtain accurate information from the shared car
owner regarding any modification for accessibility is not liable for
incorrect or false information provided by the shared car owner.
Sections 2 and 3 require that on and after January 1, 2026, a local
government may approve the new construction or remodel of an electric
vehicle charging station only if the station is built with a minimum of 120
inches of width with 36 inch access aisles and at a height accessible for
an individual using a wheelchair (accessible charging station). By January
1, 2028, all electric vehicle charging station locations with more than one
charging station must provide the same proportion of accessible charging
stations as the federal Americans with Disabilities Act requires of
parking spaces.
Section 4 clarifies that an individual shall not block reasonable
access to reserved parking by any means. A peace officer is required to
investigate a complaint that accessible parking has been blocked within
a reasonable time.
