Dear Editor,

I need some advice. I would like to bring an 3-wheeled scooter to England as that increases my mobility and freedom greatly but don’t know how I will manage with cabs etc. Am I better to bring a manual chair? Thanks, Ian Samolczyk

Ian,

Unlike the U.S., the standard black cabs in London are all accessible. They’re quite large inside, and through the use of a portable ramp and fold-away seat, the cabbie will be able to get you right in. See their site here. By all means, bring the scooter if it means you’ll be more mobile!
