I have seen many of these wheelchair bound people pull right out in front of on coming vehicles! It could be you who they pull out in front of next! The person who hit this one should be given a metal for clearing the road of hazards!!

I almost hit an individual in a wheel chair several years ago. I was headed in the direction of Murphysboro and was not far from Popular and Schnuck's. It was about 5 or 6 in the evening.
The sun was shining in my eyes. The individual got out of my way in time.

It really shook me up for awhile.

They are sometimes very hard to see with all the traffic. One guy has a tall orange flag on his wheel chair, so he will be seen.

Some are physically unable to push the button for the signal.

I am very sad this happened.

Why don't you learn to pee on the ground and make it foam. You don't know how or why these people are in wheelchairs . What if it were a vet who defended your butt. You are sum I hope you get run over by a semi . No reason for you to suck air !

When I lived ln cdale back in the early 90s there was an asshole in a chair bec of fetal alc syndrome. I think his name was time but he was a dru k and I almost ran over uim a few times afternhe jumped curbs drunk of his abs. I think he ended up gettnig ran over and killed. To the poster above youre right in the sense we dont always know why someone is in a chair but by that same measure maybe the6 are in a chair from a drunk eriving accident or from gang fight or.....its not always a noble reason. So come on down off your high horse youre the next contestant on the price of. Using kids gloves. The disability doesnt make someone any less of a prcik
