Disabled people & performance sports vehicles..??

I dont get it..I keep seeing high powered performance sports cars such as Suburu STI's, Cobra Mustangs ect with a disabled tag on the mirror so how come if they are disabled they can roll around on high power cars??

I am paralysed below the waist. I can drive any car with an auto transmission once my hand controls have been fitted.
The only other requirement is that I need to be able to stow my folded up wheelchair somewhere within reach - behind the front passenger seat in my current car. (In my previous car the front passenger foot-space was large enough).
There are plenty high performance sports cars I would love to drive. How about you contribute a few bucks to my Porche fund? LOL

Don't forget to brush your teeth with Oral-K or is that Oral-B?

So, you're saying that disabled persons must drive around in a dinky little wind-up toy? One has nothing to do with the other. Maybe they feel safer in something big and intimidating.

You clearly don't understand what kind of disabilities allow you to get a disabled tag.

I am a walking paraplegic. I have a tag because I cannot walk more than a 100 feet or stand more than a minute in place. I use a scooter that folds up and fits in the trunk of my car.

I would love to have Cobra Mustang and might if our household wasn't a one vehicle household and it just wasn't practical.

Not all people with disabilities are poor. Not all people with disabilities need a van. Not all people with disabilities need a practical car with lots of trunk space.

because some disabled people have good tastes in cars and can afford them.
I used to drive a lemon of a Neon but that was because I was a poor student. Now I roll in my boyfriends Saturn no more having to worry about breaking down in the middle of nowhere for me.

almost any car can be altered to allow a disabled person to drive. and some disabilities don't require any alterations to be made.

My boyfriend gets lots of demo cars from work so one of these days he may have to park a hummer in disabled parking when we go out somewhere.

We are not all the same.I could drive a sports with auto trans but I don't.In fact I drive a small car with auto trans which does the job.By the way I keep my blue parking permit on the dash.
I cant see the point of driving a V8 with one person in it as I am retired.Don't judge people we are not all poor because we are disabled.
