Besides addressing each section of the standard, the 2017 edition of the commentary addresses many items revised or added since the 2009 edition, including:
For new buildings and additions, enhanced dimensions for the clear floor space, turning space and the accessible route. This will affect the space provided at elements and will increase the maneuverability within such spaces for users of powered wheelchairs and scooters.

Provision to improve safety for an accessible route traversing a parking lot.
