A driving experience for the visually impaired
Viewed as if sitting in the backseat, a young man sits in the drivers seat with one hand on the steering wheel and the other on the gear shift.Let’s be fair, most people living with a visual impairment can’t drive. But for some, it’s a wish that has been granted under controlled circumstances, on a closed track with an experienced guide.
 
This article includes a short video showing Kevin Brousard in the driver’s seat. Kevin, legally blind, is a Paralympic athlete currently in training. He says this is a training course he won’t forget.
 
It’s always inspiring to see people try something for the first time and this experience is no different.
