Armless Man Stopped for Speeding
AP
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (May 25) - An armless man stopped for speeding was driving with one foot on the steering wheel and another on the pedals, a policeman testified in court.


Colin Smith, who was born without arms and has never held a driver's license, appeared in court Thursday charged with driving in a manner likely to be dangerous to the public.


The police officer who stopped Smith said the driver's seat was reclined and the armless man appeared to be using one foot to steer the car and the other to work the accelerator and brake. Smith, 31, entered no plea but said he would defend himself against the charges.


He told the court he had been driving for years, using his feet to steer, and had never had an accident.




Pretty funny. :-b

I've seen a guy play poker with his feet....It was incredible....

But why should he not be allowed to drive? There are people with no legs that drive using hand controls....I realize hands vs feet is quite a difference, but you'd be surprised how adaptable people are when they're forced to be....In my opinion, he should be allowed to drive... ;-D

To quote Chris Rock:

"You can drive with yo feet if you want to. That don't make it a good idea!"

... but he never passed a driver's test. I'm not saying he can't drive, but he is legally in the wrong.

If they wouldn't let him get a license, that's another story.

I somehow missed the part where he didn't have a valid liscense :-B

Well I say he should take the driver's test, pass it, and then go back about his business....
