What if you could make your own handicapped vehicle transport?
Well, that’s exactly what a new video by the National Association of Handicap Transportation (NAAHT) shows you how to do.
The video features a group of individuals that share their story of working in handicapped transport, and how they found their dream job after earning enough money to pay for their own transportation.
They all have different experiences in the industry, with one having been a bus driver and the other a wheelchair user.
The video is one of the most popular of its kind, with over 1.5 million views on YouTube.
You can read the story of one of them, a man named Chris, below.
The man and his wife were both driving around town, picking up groceries, when they spotted a disabled person that was stuck in traffic on their way home from the grocery store.
They called for help and were immediately greeted by an elderly woman who helped them get the man to safety.
After a few hours of driving in traffic, the man had a stroke, and Chris had to step in and get him out of the vehicle.
He said he never thought he would get to this point.
The couple eventually sold their house, but Chris said he’s still hoping for the opportunity to start a new business and be able to make a living out of it.
He said that he was able to earn enough to buy a small wheelchair, and that he’s been able to do it thanks to his work.
He was able afford to buy the car he needed to get him to work, and now he hopes to continue working.
Chris said he hopes his story will inspire others to be able do the same.
“I’m not saying I’m rich or anything, but I want to see the next generation of people who can do this,” he said.
The NAAHT said that it has more than 1,000 members, and it has partnered with a number of organizations to help educate people about handicapped transportation.
The group has also launched a website to help people with disabilities learn more about handicap transportation.
