Driving Solution for the Disabled

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I somehow have an idea how disability can cause serious uneasy and uncomfortable feeling to anyone involved. Say for example, the person who is disabled and the people or his family and friends. I have a friend disabled friend in college and every time I see her going to school, I can’t help myself but to pity her for her condition at the same time feel so proud because even though it is really hard for her, she still continue to go to school.

Situations like this need someone like NMEDA or the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association to alleviate the suffering of the disabled. If you still don’t know, NMEDA is a non-profit trade association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. No, NMEDA does not sell anything. Their members are required to stick on to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Their members or the dealers are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people with “in-person” evaluation to be sure you are getting the right driving solution that is perfect for you or your loved-one’s need.

The good thing is, NMEDA has two types of dealers: the day-to-day dealers and Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers, the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry.

If you think you need this kind of service, just go to nmeda.org and type in your ZIP code to check if there is a qualified dealer near you.

  1. I had a friend who was disabled and got a drivers license permit! Of course his vehicle was modified but he recently injured himself to the point he can no longer drive a vehicle.
