Wheelchair Users are perhaps the least visible people on the street. While car, truck and bus drivers are used to looking for oncoming traffic, bicycle and pedestrians, drivers encounter very few wheelchair users. Further, wheelchairs are built low to the ground and out of the line of sight of many drivers. As a result, some studies have shown that up to 5% of wheelchair users have reported being involved in some kind of collision. The solution is to increase visibility however possible. One solution, presented elsewhere in this website is wheelchair reflectors. Another way to increase nighttime visibility is with RehaDesign wUnderGlow Wheelchair Lights.
