London, Nov 29 (ANI): Chinese police were left astounded when they pulled over a car for a routine check, and found driver had no arms.

Zing Shen, 42, was steering the vehicle with his feet and was amazed when officers decided issue him with a public safety summons.

He told the traffic officers he had been driving like that for years after losing both arms below the elbows in an industrial accident.

“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, The Independent quoted a police spokesman, as saying.

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, the rep added.
