Waltham resident Kevin McGuire has a few bones to pick with area restaurants. McGuire, who is confined to a wheelchair after a drunk driver struck and paralyzed him from the waist down at the age of 7, said many local eateries still have miles to go before making people with disabilities feel completely welcome.
He has created AbleRoad, an app that people can use to rate restaurant experiences for disabled people.
Much like the popular review site Yelp.com, AbleRoad allow people to rate restaurants, shops, businesses, and public venues, but on wheelchair accessibility and ease of access for blind and deaf people. Since its soft launch in January, the site has garnered about 10,000 reviews and 10,000 app downloads, McGuire said last month.
