Stay out of the street! A busy roadway is not the place for wheel chairs! Thats what sidewalks are for! When you cross a street, look before you proceed. No one owes you anything. Why should I pay for an orange flag for your chair? Like that will make it OK for you to ride down Saunders Rd in a lane of traffic! What an idiot!

Wheelchairs are acceptable on city streets if:
They have tail lights, brake lights, turn signals, headlights and side mirrors.
They must obey all rules of the road just as a bicyclist must.
Otherwise, stick to sidewalks and legal street crossings that are marked as such.
Obey traffic signals at the crossings.
