Handicapped people can be taught to drive. This paper stresses the “family car” concept. If possible, the car should be adapted with special controls for the handicapped that do not preclude the car being driven by the able-bodied family members. Considerable attention is given to existing optional equipment that will assist the handicapped in performing the driving task.
The ultimate goal for the handicapped is complete independence: enter the car, perform the driving task, and exit the car unassisted.
