Goal 3: Improve access for individuals with disabilities to passenger & commercial vehicles

Improve Securement for AVs and Current Passenger Vehicles

USDOT should ensure AVs and current vehicles provide lifts or ramps, including kneeling, as well as securements. In addition, securements must include proper seat and shoulder belts in good repair. Today, the absence or incomplete presence of seat and shoulder belts often expose wheelchair riders to danger, even in ordinary traffic conditions, as opposed to a sudden stop or collision.
