in Disability money matters
8 replies 2.7K views
I have a car. I have in the last year become pretty seriously disabled. They have sent me in the post info about the Motability Scheme. I did a double, triple take. It is unbelievably generous.Astonishingly so. As I see it you get a free lease car in exchange for a proportion of PIP, free car tax, free insurance, free breakdown cover. I have a 1 year old car but am thinking why would you not take advantage of such an offer.

You seem to have an issue with giving disabled people the means to get out of their homes. How about trying out their disability for size.
