Armless man caught speeding in NZ

`A man with no arms has been caught speeding at 121 km/h (75 mph), according to police in New Zealand.

The driver, who used one foot to steer and another to operate the pedals, told officers he was born with no arms but had been driving for years.

The 32-year-old had passengers in the car when he was stopped on a highway near Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty area. [..]

Senior Constable Brent Gray approached the driver’s window, saw a foot on the dashboard and noticed the seat was reclined.

Mr Gray told colleagues he thought the man had an “attitude”, then noticed the driver had no arms.’
