Abstract [en]

We know that parents of children and adolescences with disabilities for many years have expressed concern about the lack of safety in the way their children were transported with the Special Transportation System [STS]. We have often received questions like; "Which safety regulations and laws control school transportation and STS?", "What demands can be made towards the local municipality in charge of arranging STS?", "Who is responsible for our child's traffic safety?", "How do you adjust the family car to make it as safe as possible?" Many parents have sought after an easy and comprehensible publication that describes all the medical, technical, ergonomic, legal, structural and psychological aspects that lies within the complex issue of traffic safety for children with disabilities. This is why we made this handbook. Our purpose is to present a comprehensible image of traffic safety issues from the perspective of the children and the parents.
