  •  electric wheelchairs? (0+ / 0-)

    And what about accessibility for people who are partially disabled?  

    Shall we decide they can't leave their houses unless they qualify for automobile or motorcycle licenses and/or there's good public transport in their areas?

      Most electric wheelchairs have four. And my comment, above, was that people should be barred from using their motor vehicles in ways that present a threat to others.  

      •  about that we all agree: (0+ / 0-)

        People should be barred from using their motor vehicles in ways that present a threat to others.

        To which I would also add non-motorized vehicles, and walking and running in public places, since after all a jogger can carelessly knock down an old lady on the sidewalk and kill her.  

        The existence or quantity of wheels is irrelevant: the only thing that matters in terms of physics, is inertial mass and the ability to stop in time to avoid an accident.
