Vehicle Safety for People Who Use Wheelchairs
When traveling in a motor vehicle, it is generally safest for wheelchair users to transfer to a vehicle seat and use the vehicle seatbelt system or a child safety seat that complies with federal safety standards. The wheelchair should then be stored and secured in the vehicle.
If transferring is not feasible, it is very important to secure the wheelchair to the vehicle facing forward and to use crash-tested seatbelts for the wheelchair-seated rider.
This website will continue to present information on selecting wheelchair tiedown equipment, securing wheelchairs in vans and buses, and properly restraining the rider with some of the most advanced safety technologies available for wheelchair van drivers and passengers.
