If the handicapped bathrooms are for people who cant
walk why do they put them at the end of the bathrooms ?
Well this was a very interesting question to
ponder... as I thought to myself why do we make the poor handicap
people walk all the way to the very back of the bathroom?!?!? I mean
honestly haven't they gone through enough without having to walk all
the way back there?!? So Sarah was the first one to try and help us
solve this unknown crisis:
its much more convenient to put them at
the end of the row of stalls because they are larger, although they
aren't always at the far end.

So that people negotiating there way in and out of
them won't block traffic to other stalls
C.H.U.D. faithfully came to our rescue:
It's a matter of the best layout for a small room
such as a restroom. The large handicapped accessible stall is placed
at the back of the room because it would block access to the other
stalls if placed near the door.
TB aided C.H.U.D.:
The end of the rest room has a supporting
wall that allows for a support bar to be placed. Support bars are
designed to support 400 to 500 pounds and the metal partitions used
in most rest rooms generally cannot accommodate such requirements.
Also having the toilet at the end allows a wheelchair more room to manoeuvre and keep out people's way.

as I have said before this is
the work of the secret government organization. they do this
because many of their undercover agents pretend to be handicapped
(for an unknown reason) and at the end of the bathrooms there is a
place where they can report in
theMrEman agreed with TB and C.H.U.D. on this
the reason the handicap bathrooms are at the end is
because that is where they can achieve the most space for the stall.
if it were in the front you couldn't get past it to go to the
Bluto finished off the answers with this:
I assume so that the handles can be attached to a
structural wall rather than the thin steel one of the dividers.
Also, the tile won't show chair/crutch scratches as much as painted
