Steering can't have been easy either, must be a bit of a clever dick!
Romanian traffic cops in the seaside town of Constanta were rather surprised to discover that the driver of a BMW they pulled for zigzagging across the road had no licence, no hands, no clothes, and was figuratively legless, evz.ro reports. Aurel Olteanu, 23, tested positive for twice the drink-drive limit, and put his lack of …
Thanks to the elbow being quite a knobbly joint, it is quite possible to secure someones upper limbs together by securing the cuffs (or cable ties if the merkins are about to send you to cuba) around the upper arm between the elbow joint and the bicep.
Feel free to try this at home with your chosen concenting adult.
Hey guys ... sorry but you really shouldn't believe anything you read. I just read the news from www.evz.ro and it says that the driver had his arms cut-off from the elbow dow. It says nothing about his legs.
Also, the car had an automatic gearbox so it could just press the gas pedal and stear with his mouth.
Dear editor, please don't give innacurate information.
Having seen handicapped people drive non-custom cars (and do many other routine things quite well), I only wonder if he's a passable driver when sober, and if so why he doesn't have a license.
Here the link to the original article: http://evz.ro/article.php?artid=314103
A few more interesting tidbits: the guys hands were "amputated just below the elbows"; "the breathalizer showed 0.24mg alcohol in his breath, meaning that the blood alcohol level was twice that", in Romania it is forbidden to drive if you drank any amount at all; apparently the driver borrowed a relatives car keys and went for a joyride; Later the police could not find him as at the address they got from his ID (I wonder where he was keeping it) no one has ever heard of him.
Sorry to burst your bubble, please re-read the article carefully, taking special care to actually read all the words.
Done that? Did you notice "figuratively"? Do you know what that means?
In case you struggle with join the dots, legless was referring to the intoxication and not *actually* having no legs.... sigh
On a related note: @Stewart Knight - he was legless, he couldn't stand up in court anyway
(Coat aquisition in progress)
You can get those keys that allow the door to open automatically when your in range. The new Mini Cooper (Built by BMW) has this function if your willing to pay £900 for it (which I didn't)
There, issue solved.
Oh hang on, where did he hang the key?
Please turn your parody detector on. I was lampooning the people who whinge about such things (I thought the "blah blah blah" should have given it away - although after I posted it, I did think that I should have added two more "blahs").
And yes, I realise the irony that in posting a comment about people who whinge in their comments that I am myself whinging, and thus hypocritcal, because I must therefore be whinging about my comment which is whinging about such a .... oh no, I've gone cross-eyed.
That's right folks, people without hands cannot open doors, they live in houses that don't have any.
Just like people with out legs stay in one room unless people carry them to the shops. Blind people walk around in circles until someone holds their hands and deaf people get run over all the time because they could hear the car coming....
Ever thought they may of use their teeth or feet & toes?
@ Stu: I seriously want to know how he managed to unlock, get in, and start the car up without using their hands! i tried it, in a standard car, and found that i couldnt do it. I am guessing that the car was stolen car, and it did not have any adaptations made to it?? any articles i have found on it has not stated otherwise
@ Colin: well...he was at a nudist beach before leaving "in a bit of a hurry".........
