Cars Q&A

I am a physically handicapped person with right leg polio but was driving modified FIAT, NE118 and then normal Esteem Automatic for almost 30 years. I have strongly felt while struggling to remain mobile in the midst of heavy traffic that NONE OF THE BIGWIGS IN CAR BUSINESS HAS EVER TRIED TO DO ANY RESEARCH TO FACILITATE THIS SECTOR OF THE SOCIETY. Even government agencies like RTO, Excise and Licensing authorities have been very apathetic to these people. Can any one take up this issue at appropriate level and make things easy for them?

  • Maruti used to sell Zen with an automatic transmission and foot/hand controls till about 2003. I have one such car Not sure if they are still doing it with any of their models. I think only A-Star is automatic right. Other automatic cars can be retro-fitted with custom made controls but the fit, finish, quality and the functionality leave a lot to be desired. I have a an automatic Santro that has retro-fitted hand controls.

    Answer by Pallapu Raju on Jul 1, 2018

  • Indeed a very true comment. I am driving Zen automatic wonderfully fitted hand controls by Maruti in 2004, which has made me mobile. But now I am in need of replacement due its normal wear and tear but neither Maruti nor any other Manufacturer is making such cars which is really astonishing. Instead of giving improvise Models the Marut which is a Govt Owned company, has stopped making such cars. Moreover the Government also does not pressurise them. Like we have reservation quota in Education Instititute or Govt service , the Govt should make compulsory some percentage of manufacuring cars for the physically challenged..By enacting the Act for Differently abled will not solve the purpose unless its implementation is made mandatory.
