Whenever we roll through a crowd of able bodies, the looks on their faces read, “Why are they so cool, and we’re not?” Naturally, we know that they are jealous of our hot rides.

  • Don’t be afraid to toot your own horn. This can be helpful to tell people they are in your way. The horn is not your enemy, it’s your best friend!
  • If you need something, say something! You are your best advocate. A little sass can translate into a lot of class. You have a disability—use it to your advantage!
