      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.
