      New Regulations for Disabled Allow for no Lines


      The Labor and Social Affairs Committee approved new regulations for handicapped accessibility in public places, such as courthouses, theaters, museums, galleries, libraries, banks and supermarkets. 
      Part of the new regulations state that a person with a disability cannot be required to wait in line in places which provide a public service (such as banks, social security lines and supermarkets). However this is only if the disabled person displays a valid certificate indicating eligibility for this exemption.
