Countless cars around the United States have handicapped stickers, license plates, or placards that hang from the rearview mirror. This is made possible because of various handicap accessibility features for vehicles.
Those that are handicapped are not automatically unable to drive a vehicle. As long as a person has the mental capacity to drive, technology has made it possible to gain assistance with the physical aspect of driving. "Leading Edge" goes on the scene to show people what vehicles are offering those who are handicapped in one way or another.
Technology has been rapidly improving and this has made it possible for more people to become self-sufficient. Vehicles can be equipped with all sorts of electronics that allow for a more comfortable seat, foot or hand-controlled levers, as well as ramps to accommodate wheelchairs and other items for the driver. This gives people their freedom back so they no longer have to rely on others.
Johnson introduces the program that discusses some of the options available in today's marketplace and even talks about the features with handicapped drivers to see what they have to say. This segment is one of many that covers trending topics in such categories as technology, politics, education, food and beverage, and more.
The "Leading Edge" series is distributed throughout the United States to Public Television stations and not through PBS. Please view the series website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com or email the show producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for additional information.
