 Ability on Wheels - Enabling Drivability

In coversation with the author of the book Mr Harish Kumar, initiator of an NGO Ability on Wheels Charitable Trust which provides mobility services & solutions to people with disabilities. (www.abilityonwheels.org), who wishes to introduce himself as a differently abled person with a passion for driving and he has owned 2 National Records in Limca Book of Records. You can know more about him on http://www.herexpertise.com/ability-on-wheels/

What inspired you to write this book?

A Lady Doctor (physically challenged) called me up from Vizag. RTO was not sure how she would be able to drive & hence was not issuing a license to her. I had a word with him & the matter was sorted out.

An officer from Indian Railways was running from pillar to post trying to figure out a solution on how to drive & was not aware of how to get a license. I gave him the related documents with the help of which he is now driving his own car with a valid driving license.

Many such incidents made me conclude that there is nowhere people with disabilities can get a complete information on all the aspects related to driving, getting a license & owning a vehicle.

Similar situation was there on the other side of the table (RTO). Mostly these officers were half aware of the problems, solutions, guidelines & acts due to which people with disabilities were suffering

I felt there’s a need to create & compile A to Z of “Disability & Driving” & ensure that not only people with disabilities but abled people & government officials also get complete information on the subject
