Hi, I taught a disabled driver yesterday. He was born with no right arm and only a malformed left hand, without an arm on the left side.
He was incredible in what he was able to do in the vehicle on his first driving lesson - better than any driver I have seen in 33 years as a driving instructor.
In order to be able to drive, on the advice of an occupational therapist, it was necessary to move his seat forward as far as possible, and as upright as possible.
My question is, in his particular case, would it be safer to disconnect the airbag because he has to sit so close, provided he wears the seatbelt (mandatory anyway)?
Advice would be appreciated.
