Every child should have the opportunity to experience kartSTART, a program that teaches youth about the fundamentals of driving, by getting them in the driver’s seat of a vehicle that’s just their size; a go-kart.
Now kartSTART has created a new kart for kids with physical disabilities affecting their lower limbs.
Though the newly adapted kart has conventional foot pedals, it also has hand-controls built into the steering wheel to operate the throttle and brakes, which means that drivers can accelerate and brake using only their hands. The new accessible go-kart is an exciting innovation, as it gives even more youth the chance to participate in kartSTART and establish a foundation for safe driving.
