Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Yes-bad sidewalks, no special supports for disabilities - Jul 4, 2015
Like in any non-first-world country, they would have a hard time here. - Jan 29, 2013
Many difficulties. The roads, drivers, and many other factors do not accommodate those who use a wheelchair or have other disabilities. - Dec 22, 2011
Many. The city is not at all set up for someone with disabilities. - Sep 9, 2010
Insurrmountable difficulties. The city is not at all disability-friendly. - Aug 21, 2010
Near impossible. - Oct 1, 2009
No smooth roads. They are all very bumpy and nothing is wheelchair accessible. it is even hard to get around w/babies and strollers. you can"t easily take strollers into any store. Most stores are either upstairs or downstairs so wheelchairs or strollers are out of the question. - Nov 5, 2008
This is not a disability friendly city. The sidewalks and pavement are uneven, elevators are small and builidings are not well equipped with wheelchair access. - Sep 29, 2008
Lots! No accomadations are made, including in most apartment buildings or houses. - Sep 9, 2008
