The Americans with Disabilities Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability in areas including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications, and access to state and local government programs and services. Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act focuses on businesses and other public facilities, and requires these entities to make reasonable efforts to accommodate people with disabilities.
What part of the building is inspected?
ADA PARKING LOT
Most ADA lawsuits begin with the parking lot because that is where the first point of entry to your publicly accessible property exists.

Following the parking lot, curbs, ramps, and railways along those areas are subject to ADA scrutiny due to the location.
Having doors easily enough for everyone to pull and/or push open is a common ADA compliance issue.
