Missing a Mirror

Just noticed something.

Why is it the case that most of the toilets adapted for disabled persons I have found myself using (consequentially — the other toilets are shut, not available, its the nearest, etc), be it at an airport, library, school hostel, shopping centre and other places, have had no mirror inside them?

Do I enter the wrong toilets? Is the absence a cost saving exercise? Or are there some other sinister reasons behind this?

  1. I’ve never seen a mirror inside an individual public toilet. Just at the washstands. Thanks for the ping back ! Have a great day!

    • True, but this particular one is a standalone toilet, for a single person, and not part of a toilet with various cubicles. There are other toilets in the other section of the building, on the other side, but they are out of the way and about maybe a minute walk from here. Anyhow, it has no mirror, and i realised that quite a number of the adapted toilets i have used have no mirrors in them. For example at my former school, there was an adapted toilet that was always open, even when the main toilets were shut for cleaning, etc. It had no mirror in it. Then, 5 or 6 years ago, some of my colleagues living in a different city to the one i live in, were renting a school, from their local council, for a regular function. That had an accessible adapted toilet, again that didn’t have a mirror…
