Everyone has the right and deserves the ability to come and go freely and independently if they have the desire and will.
This freedom can not always be enjoyed. The combination of less financial resources and higher cost of automobiles with lowered floors and ramps or lifts can severely limit transportation availability. However for those with mobility impairments and other special needs, financial condition does not diminish the desire or enjoyment of the freedom to come and go independently. Accessible transportation is often nearly nonexistent outside of metropolitan areas of major cities with accessible public transportation, and even within these areas is often difficult to utilize and limited. Outside of major metropolitan areas in the United States and Canada, and a few other cities such as Bogotá, Colombia wheelchair friendly or accessible transportation is almost nonexistent throughout the rest of the world.
Bumpy sidewalks, potholes, and many other hazards even for non-handicapped - are some examples of the difficulties that people with disabilities have to face even when accessible public transportation is available. Even in a automobile adapted with a lowered floor, ramps, or wheelchair lift, parking in dense metropolitan can be extremely difficult if not impossible. Some metropolitan areas offer free parking at any meter, if you can find one and if you can find one without countless obstructions from street lights to magazine and newspaper dispensers blocking your ability to lower the ramp or lift to the sidewalk.
To solve this problem and ensure the human dignity and freedom of movement to people unable to walk, the Road Chariot was created.
With the Road Chariot a wheelchair user can independently enter and exit the vehicle. They can park nearly anywhere and can even comfortablytake along a passenger. The Road Chariot can even be used by non-wheelchair users, if desired or necessary, such as family and friends or those with with limited balance or simply someone who desires the increased stability of a trike with walk on/walk off simplicity and increased storage capacity over a 2 wheeled vehicle. The rear ramp can be removed if desired
The Road Chariot returns the freedom and rights of people with mobility impairments to come and go independently overcoming the obstacles of life within a dense metropolitan city or the challenges of rural areas with little or no infrastructure.
