Gettng the Disabled into the Outdoors
To test the dependability of the ATV wheelchair with all-terrain tires, Dyreson decided to take a road trip from Perris, California, to Washington D.C. and learned:
- his ATV wheelchair would get 100 miles per gallon with a range of 350 miles;
- his ATV wheelchair could run-up to 55-miles per hour on the highway. “That’s the speed a highway patrolman clocked me at, before he pulled me over,” Dyreson says.
- a gasoline-powered wheelchair running on major interstates and highways was not illegal; and
- he could make a 4,000-mile trip in his ATV wheelchair without a single breakdown.
