New car: an accessible minivan

It also means that once I’m locked in, I can swivel on the spot to access the front driver’s seat. It’s harder to get into that than the driver’s seat, though, because the whole van conversion was designed with me-as-driver in mind. So once I’ve swivelled, I lean forward and toggle a switch on the side of the B&D Independence Transfer Seat Base driver’s seat and it glides back on its rail. The driver’s seat has slid back on rails embedded in the floor, and swivelled 45 degrees to align with the wheelchair. Once in the driver’s seat, I hit the two toggles in reverse order, and the seat swivels and glides back into driving position.
