WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND: A 31 year old man with no arms has appeared in court charged with dangerous driving after police stopped him driving with his feet at high speed.
Police claim Colin Raymond Smith was doing 121km/ph(75 mph)- 21km over the limit - while using one foot to steer from his reclined seat and the other to control the brake and accelerator.
Smith, who had two passegers in the car, told an officer he was born without arms, had never had a drivers licence and had been driving with his feet for years.
