No sidewalks , no curbcuts: a dangerous route to the bus stop for a wheelchair user

This video highlights a common problem for wheelchair users trying to get around- sidewalks that suddenly stop or have no curbcuts causing them to have to roll in the street. I like this video because it is filmed from the back of the wheelchair user and you can hear the cars whizzing by almost at his height - I've had to do this and it's pretty scary. This is the only way this guy can get to the bus to take mass transportation.
