    Not something I could reach, but over the years,  I noticed  the  vehicles at disability road shows.    Too dear, too  bulky, virtually never including  a drive-in, self-driving possibility.  Virtually never really made for disabled people , but instead needing complex and extremely costly individual retro-fitting.   

    Being disabled doesn't mean getting  a supply of servants ,  certainly  not a personal chauffeur!

    Things could sensibly be included in standard design for the whole population,  including  the  female  majority, and for the times when people  are   not as strong,  through illness, age, or accident.  For example,  hand brakes which average women  cannot  easily operate.

    I’m sorry I cannot attend. It seems like a nice event though.
