My Life My Car

Aleš starts by recounting his collision with a lorry and how it turned his life upside down. “I don’t recall anything at all. All I know is what others have told me.” He spent several days in a medically induced coma. The police report says that a lorry driver had passed a cyclist and was returning to his lane, where he collided with a motorbike and sent the rider spinning into a field.

The first car he bought was a black ŠKODA ROOMSTER with a 1.6 litre petrol engine. “I had it fitted with alloy wheels to make it look good,” says the passionate motorist, who took his ŠKODA on a road trip through France, Belgium, England and Scotland.

In the autumn of 2017 he started looking around for a new car. He counted his money and thought about what he could afford. The FABIA and the OCTAVIA were top candidates, but in the end, he went for a car with a boot big enough to fit both his wheelchair and his dog, the SKODA Superb.

Aleš can't speak highly enough of his car. “It’s got rugged crispy edges. It’s got the acceleration you need to overtake safely. I like details such as the optional backlighting of the interior. As for the technology, the Maxi DOT colour display is fun, and the heated electrically adjustable memory seats and heated windscreen are a godsend for wheelchair users.
