A British woman has trouble

A British woman has trouble

This is another of these stories from the other side of the Atlantic which could not possibly happen in America. Meet Sharran Alexander who lives in London. She’s fifty-years-old and a mere 450 pounds in weight. The point of the story is that she’s always wanted to be able to drive, but every time she’s approached a driving school, the vehicle provided has been too small. As instructors have been quick to point out, it’s dangerous for anyone to drive if she cannot turn the wheel freely. She’s spent several thousand dollars traveling to different parts of the country in her efforts to find someone to teach her. So far, she’s failed the driving test five times. Now this could never happen in America. Our great nation is used to providing suitable vehicles in which people can learn and take their tests. The fact an individual is slightly bigger than usual would never be allowed to get in the way of proper training and a driver’s license at the end of the process. Driving schools would go out of their way to help someone like Ms Alexander.
