Disabled viewing

Disabled viewing

Originally uploaded by Dave Foord

Whilst having lunch at Newbury Racecourse, I noticed this sign, and thought it a bit odd. When I first saw the sign, my first instinct was it was somewhere to go to view disabled people (bit like being at a zoo).

I am guessing though that it is a raised platform allowing shorter people or those in wheelchairs a better view of the races by getting them higher up. But did this area need to be labeled – isn’t it obvious, and couldn’t it have been called ‘raised viewing area’ or similar?
