Armless Man Stopped for SpeedingArmless Man Stopped for Speeding
WELLINGTON, New Zealand
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.

It has been some years since it was on television, but there was a story of a woman born without arms. She could do with her feet what a lot of people could not do with two arms/hands. She cooked, cleaned house, drove a car (with license) changed her babies diapers, ate with the family at the table, and it went on and on. She used her toes like fingers. Amazing to watch.Facta non verba
