Back up to the car seat.
Hold on to the side of the car or the dashboard for support.
Lower yourself slowly onto the seat edge. Watch your head.
Bring Your Legs into the Car
Slide back to the center of the seat.
Lift your legs one at a time into the car.
Note: Ask about a special permit to park in disabled zones. This may be available through your state’s department of motor vehicles.
