What Do You Call an Armless Man with an Attitude Problem?

A driver.
An armless New Zealand man has been cleared of dangerous driving after being found driving a speeding car with his feet.

Police dropped the charges on Friday after Colin Smith, 31, provided evidence he could drive an unmodified car with automatic gears safely, despite being born without arms.

Police stopped Smith for speeding near the North Island city of Tauranga in March.

The highway patrol officer who pulled Smith over for speeding initially believed he had an "attitude problem" when he saw the driver's seat reclined and Smith's right foot on the dashboard.
