A Chinese motorist was arrested after police pulled him over for a routine check and discovered that he had no arms. Zing Shen, 42, who lost both arms below the elbow in an industrial accident, told the officers that he had been steering with his legs for years.

A police spokesman said: "The man said that he was a very safe driver and felt he was as good as anyone else on the road, despite his disability. He had an automatic car so did not need to worry about changing gears and said he had put a lot of practice into learning to control the steering wheel with his legs. He said he was actually even more careful now with driving than he had been before he lost his arms." Police issued Mr Zing with a public safety summons.
