The article reports on the issue regarding the rules on treatment and security given to people with disabilities during their air travel. The U.S. Congress passed the Air Carrier Access which guaranteed a consistent and nondiscriminatory treatment to the disabled people who travel by air. However, the rules are not followed which led the Paralyzed Veterans of America to work hard to enlighten the travel industry regarding the needs and concerns of these travelers.
