I recently made my first – and last – visit to the new Cheney Stadium. While it looks nice, attempting to get seated revealed a glaring safety issue.
Our seats were in Row 12. but handrails only extended to the first four rows. This lack of handrails did allow the addition of two seats to each row, but at significant risk to the public.
I observed younger patrons also having difficulty above Row 4, especially if carrying loads and having no steadying rails. The seatbacks are too low and require a hand to be used. The plastic seats are too narrow and confining.
I wonder who is liable for accidents in this area? I am surprised the plans passed ADA and OSHA scrutiny.
