Tennessee is considering changing handicap signs on state property as part of the “Dynamic Accessibility Act,” using a more active symbol showing an individual on the move. The bill’s sponsor, rep Darren Jernigan, calls it “an upbeat image” adding that “it’s just time to move on” from “a stylized stick man sitting straight up.” If passed, beginning July 2020, the state of Tennessee would start placing signs with the new accessibility image at all new construction and renovations across the state, and the new symbol would appear on license plates. New York and Connecticut and several U.S. cities have adopted the symbol, which accessibility advocates says empowers individuals with disabilities and offers a more accurate portrayal of what it means to be wheelchair bound.
