The Department of Transportation (DOT) is considering a ban of peanuts on airplanes. The Air Carrier Access Act prohibits discrimination by airlines against passengers with disabilities (a human rights issue), and DOT agrees that passengers with severe peanut allergies qualify as disabled because the condition limits a major life activity, in this case, flying.
Today is the last day before the comment period on the DOT proposal closes. Elizabeth Goldenberg with Onespot Allergy will be posting the below petition to the Department of Transportation website tonight. By acting together before the comment period closes, we should be able to get hundreds more signatures.
