Mandate easy to use securement rings on power wheelchairs.

Many power wheelchairs are being manufactured without easy to use (or reach) securement rings. Consequently, it takes too long for paratransit or fixed route bus operators to secure the chair. Others aren't being properly secured at all. DOT needs to work with wheelchair manufacturers to STRONGLY encourage strong, easy to reach securement rings on all wheelchairs.
