    New Federal Regulation proposed to make rental cars easier to obtain for people who use hand controls

    The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has proposed a new rule that will expand access to rental cars for people with disabilities.

    In recent years, vehicle manufacturers have outfitted some vehicle models, including many popular sedans, with knee bolster airbags. For drivers who use hand controls, knee bolster airbags are problematic because, when deployed, they are likely to cause the hand controls to strike the driver.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    They stopped installing hand controls on 2-door cars. That's a problem for many of us.
