March 4, 2020
Posted by: WAVCompare

Wheelchair accessible vehicles that allow the wheelchair user to ‘ride up front’ are becoming increasingly popular – many people much prefer to sit as a wheelchair passenger, alongside the driver than in the rear of the vehicle. It’s much the same as most people if they had the choice would sit in the front passenger, the overall experience and journey is often better.
