Above drawing shows both side and top views of simple and inexpensive hand control for clutch and brake. This may be installed by any good mechanic. Adjustments are made so that clutch disengages before brake peddle begins to move. Drawings of other equipment suitable for safe and easy driving by handicapped people will be published in subsequent issues of this publication. Such drawings and descriptions will later be assembled in booklet form.
