Paris Takes Handicapped Accessibility Seriously

A French bus driver has been praised for kicking every single passenger off his bus after they failed to make room for a man in a wheelchair. Francois Le Berre, who has multiple sclerosis, was waiting to get on a bus in a Paris suburb, but none of the passengers would move to allow him space. The unidentified bus driver noticed the problem and took the unprecedented step of asking every single passenger to leave the bus. He then allowed Le Berre to come on board and drove off with him as the sole passenger. Buses in the French capital normally have one or two spaces for wheelchairs, and passengers are supposed to give priority to them and allow users to get on.
