“It all depends on your roadside-assistance policy. Some providers have no added roadside assistance for drivers with disabilities, including those who need wheelchair transportation.
Check with your car insurance, or roadside assistance provider, to see if they offer this service. In some cases, it comes standard. But you might also have to add it as an extra service to the policy for a fee.”
