Armless man busted for speedingA Waikato, New Zealand man with no arms was caught driving 121 km/h last week. He used one foot to steer and another to press the pedals. The man, who has never had a driver's license, was fined $170, prohibited from getting behind the wheel, and may also be charged with "dangerous driving." From The New Zealand Herald:
Senior Constable Brent Gray approached the driver's window, spotted a foot up on the dashboard and noticed the seat was reclined.Link (via Peculiarosities)
Mr Gray told colleagues he thought the man had an "attitude". But then he noticed his armless torso...
(Senior Sergeant Deidre Lack) had nothing against people with disabilities who drove motor vehicles, but had absolutely no sympathy for this speeding driver.
"Obviously driving at a speed like that, arms or not, you're just waiting for an accident. You're asking for an accident at 120km/h, whether you've got arms or not. Look at the risk he was posing."
