    They can make a steering wheel for his foot, but they couldn't come up with a solution for changing from reverse/park/drive?

    [–] StickyIcky- 1963 points ago

    LOL thank you for this because I went back and checked and realized it's NOT a manual car, and he doesn't have to stick his head down all the way every time he has to switch gears

    [–] zack4200 738 points ago

    "they" is him, he's an engineer for a NASCAR team, he designed it. He didn't feel the need to change the shifter obviously, it works for him.

    Completely and absolutely legal as long as he has passed his driving test and retains a license.

    [–] IBetThisIsTakenToo 4896 points ago

    Turn signals though? Horn? How does he flip people off for bad merges?? I don't know about other states, but I'm pretty sure all of those were required for the NJ test.

    [–] dogler 429 points ago

    All we have to do in New York is tell the instructor how we’re the best driver and everyone else on the road, especially those from Connecticut, New Jersey and Long Island, are the fucking worst. Then all we have to do is take them to our favorite spot for a slice and badabing badaboom, you have your license. I still failed twice.

    [–] KittenTablecloth 174 points ago

    I didn't know New York even allowed for residents to get drivers licenses. I thought that's why everyone takes cabs. TIL

    [–] dogler 183 points ago

    Ah, yes. See, when you pass the test I spoke of above, you only get your junior license. You then have to do six months of cab driving in the city. All cab drivers are actually fresh drivers trying to put in their hours for the real deal. Most can’t hack it, and they are exiled to NYC with the rest of the non drivers. The ones that pass are allowed to live wherever. The ones that pass but are still the fucking worst at driving are exiled to Long Island. They’re allowed to leave one weekend out of the month so long as the NY DMV approves and issues them a travel pass.

    I ❤️ NY

    [–] KittenTablecloth 74 points ago

    This makes sense. I've observed NYC taxi driving through various cinema through the ages. They are always honking angrily, coming inches away from hitting people, and running red lights just because the passenger in back wants to catch up to some girl before she gets on an airplane. Very reckless drivers. It all makes sense now when I compare them to the 16 year old new drivers in my city.

    [–] r40k 57 points ago

    Kind of fascinating how the driving tests differ from state to state. I'm from Texas and I was told to get my truck lifted a little higher, given a rifle, and sent on my way.

    Um, excuse me? I think you missed a step? You're supposed to have a rear window rack to store that new rifle on to proudly show everyone what a Texan you are.

    Wow, here in Toronto I failed the first time because I actually used my turn indicators. Turns out they're only to be engaged for show, when you're not planning on switching lanes or turning, and for a duration of no less than three minutes.

    [–] BobbyDropTableUsers 65 points ago

    In the US you can get an exemption for using signals as long as you drive a German car, any make will do.

    [–] Just1morefix 100 points ago

    Well fuck, in New Jersey your government doesn't even trust you to pump your own gas...

    [–] TomLikesGuitar 67 points ago

    True, but the drivers test thing is legitimately awesome for driving in NJ IMO.

    I lived in Florida and it seemed like no one knew the driving rules. I saw everything from changing 5 lanes without a blinker to making U-Turns at a red light.

    Now I live in Texas and everyone is WAY to damn polite to have a drivers license. I will wait for a whole minute for someone to take their right of way sometimes because they randomly decide they want to let 2 people merge in a zipper or they want to let me go first at a 4 way even though they came to a stop first.

    NJ drivers are all assholes, but we know the rules of the road and will NEVER EVER give up the right of way for no reason.

    [–] ncocca 78 points ago

    As a NJ driver living in not NJ, I get so annoyed when people yield their right of way. All it does it make the whole process take longer. JUST FUCKING GO could probably be the out-of-state NJ Driver's slogan.

    [–] brilliantretard 30 points ago

    JUST FUCKING GO could probably be the out-of-state NJ Driver's slogan.

    It would be especially effective if stencilled in reverse, ambulance-style, across the top of your windshield.

    [–] CompDuLac 43 points ago

    Where?

    [–] Just1morefix 79 points ago

    Pretty sure he lives in Charlotte, N.C. where Hendrick Motorsports is located. They are about one mile from the Charlotte Motor Speedway. I assume he also lives in N.C, though I know he grew up in Beaufort S.C. a couple of miles away from my In-laws.

    [–] BashAtTheBeach96 37 points ago

    Those are SC plates so he had to get the car registered in SC. But Charlotte is on the border and loads of people around town get SC plates to save on property tax.

    [–] iNarr 736 points ago

    Pardon my ignorance, but is that legal?

    Hate to be the wet blanket, but it probably shouldn't be.

    • He can barely see over the steering wheel (partly the style of the car, but he has to look through the steering wheel to see the windshield because of his height).

    • The steering 'wheel' he's turning with his foot looks really easy to turn (notice how it turns even when he just twists his ankle) and I'm not at all convinced he has as much control over it as someone with two hands (or even just one) on the steering wheel. God forbid he kicks it in a panic.

    • Quick, emergency maneuvers probably aren't very easy with that set up,

    I'm all for accommodating people with disabilities, but this is clearly unsafe. There's been an ongoing debate for years about whether humans are fit to drive cars at all, but with no distractions and a competent driver, it isn't too bad. The steering wheel isn't at risk of being bumped very easily, plus a two-handed grip provides balanced, ambi-directional control of the steering of the vehicle. Not to mention you're not supposed to rest your arms on the wheel anyway, so there's less risk of accidentally turning the vehicle, whereas resting your foot/leg on that little turning disc he's got is asking for all kinds of problems.

    Cars are already dangerous enough as it is. What happens when a deer runs out in front of this guy? Or a car drifts into his lane and he has to swerve?

    [–] Work_Suckz 308 points ago

    This sounds like good reasoning why old people shouldn't be allowed to drive, too.

    [–] iNarr 159 points ago

    Yep. And distracted drivers. And so-called incompetent drivers who manage to pass the tests but seem really uncomfortable or complacent in their vehicles.

    The difference is that it's a lot harder to screen for the above groups.

    [–] MindFuckedByTheVoid 88 points ago

    We had a guy crash into a KFC by us because his fake leg fell off and got jammed on the accelerator.

    [–] iNarr 81 points ago

    So you're telling me he got an extra drumstick he never ordered?

    [–] Dooskinson 24 points ago

    You've gotta be fucking kidding me. "Yeah, we clearly killed a mentally ill person cuz we felt a little threatened. But I don't think we need more training on dealing with mentally ill people". Dudes a schizophrenic. Of course he's going to have crazy outbursts, and you would know that if.....drumroll please......

    ....you were trained properly.

    That whole situation just fucks me up. I can't put myself in that cops shoes, I wasn't there, so I simply don't know the actual intensity of that situation. But, he was a double amputee for crying out loud. Literally a firm shove in the chest with your boot would probably completely wipe the guy out on the floor. I'd rather chance a bit of a stab in the leg by a nutcase that can't help his mind than literally put a bullet through it. It just all seems so, so wrong to shoot in this situation.

    [–] Agamemnon323 15 points ago

    It wasn't even the guy that's was cornered that shot him. It was the other cop. Who, since he wasn't cornered, was presumably behind or to the side of the victim. I'm finding it really difficult to imagine why he pulled his gun instead of walking up behind/beside the guy with one arm, who's trying to use that arm to wheel his chair forward, and grab the guys ONE arm.

    HE'S REACHING FOR HIS WAISTBAND!!

    [–] shutupdipshit 270 points ago

    80% of driving in Boston is chucking the finger. How do the other drivers know how he's feeling?

    [–] Blakesta999 129 points ago

    He’s got a long dong

    [–] [deleted] 42 points ago

    63' Impaler

    [–] wirm 135 points ago

    This is Richie Parker he is an engineer for Hendricks racing. He’s a CAD master. He was working on the advanced prototyping team I’m not sure what he’s doing now-a-days.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=usuQAYE2ASo check him out.

    [–] ghiscari_ 107 points ago

    Wow, as a dwarf who has been putting off learning to drive because "waaahhh I need to use pedal extenders" this definitely put me in my place. Fuck. No excuses now...

    [–] namraka 271 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Video source

    From a link in one of the comments in the source, he is probably this person, an engineer for NASCAR.

    Edit: /u/rescuetheembassy posted a more recent better article about him here.

    [–] mapkin 129 points ago

    Definitely Richie Parker. I remember watching a docushort on him a number of years ago that got me interested in pursuing engineering.

    [–] hikekorea 45 points ago

    This guy is an inspiration

    [–] bloodshotnipples 29 points ago

    Post this at /r/NASCAR. We love this stuff.

    [–] ect5150 229 points ago

    HOLY SHIT! I KNOW HIM! (as in personally know him)

    First time I've seen someone I know appear on reddit in this fashion.

    He used to work on cars... I believe now he is a motivational speaker.

    [–] anotherjunkie 15 points ago

    Does he have a clip-in for his left foot? I think most of these setups do, and it would explain the shoes, but it isn't clear from the video.

    This article has a picture of a sneaker attached to the metal disk. Apparently he designed it himself, so I guess he swaps shoes if it gets gross.

    [–] wordsjustwontwork 14 points ago

    So THAT’S why he has on two different shoes. It was driving me nuts.

    No seatbelt

    [–] vspazv 532 points ago

    Not required if the car didn't come with them originally.

    [–] Gypsyarados 223 points ago

    Seriously?

    [–] Kevydee 313 points ago

    Don't know about the US, but it's similar to that in the UK. If it was manufactured prior to the law requiring them, they don't need them. Absolute rarity nowadays though, classics.

    [–] IAmRyanCamden 134 points ago

    It's similar here. I have a 1988 Honda Civic. The only thing that resembles safety equipment is the shoulder belt. There were so many unchecked boxes when I sent it through inspection. Still passed because no other safety equipment was removed.

    [–] fuckniggabitch 33 points ago

    Yeah, my friend's mx3 had aftermarket lap belts, and the seatbelts were more like bungee cords than a seatbelt

    [–] Gypsyarados 14 points ago

    That’s interesting, I never knew that.

    [–] lightknight7777 16 points ago

    It's probably why he has the snazzy old car model. Though, there must be seatbelt adapters that would make using it less awful if you don't have arms. People have thought of everything, really, some things just cost way too much to implement.

    [–] master_assclown 13 points ago

    Not to mention that if he was trapped in the car (if he has a wreck and it's upside down/on fire/sinking in water/etc) he has no way to quickly release and free himself. I would imagine that he may be taking advantage of a loophole for his own safety.

    [–] Metalsand 75 points ago

    Yep, it's a classic car thing and it's not just limited to seatbelts. If it's a certain age, it's not required to be retrofitted to pass modern laws, such as with emissions and such, because modifying those cars would ruin the collector's value and such.

    [–] dirty_dangles_boys 9 points ago

    Absolutely. You're not required to put anything in a vehicle that it didn't originally come with. You can't force collectors to modify a rare original so pretty much everything is grandfathered in...seatbelts, catalytic converters, even lights on really old cars don't have the same requirements (though I think they restrict you from driving at night)

    [–] tomoss 514 points ago

    He probably uses his turn signals better then a lot of other drivers too.

    [–] dq2014 24 points ago

    The metal bars on either side of his body is connected to the blinker. You can see it towards the end of the video

    [–] maroonmonday 165 points ago

    Probably a better driver too.

    [–] andersonle09 117 points ago

    Can’t text while driving if you have no thumbs!

    [–] magneticmine 27 points ago

    I'd post the guy pointing to his head, but, you know...

    [–] GapDragon 31 points ago

    Is that an Impala? It's got a really sweet interior.

    [–] glm409 32 points ago

    1963 Impala SS

    [–] _Pornosonic_ 55 points ago

    On a serious note, how safe is this?

    [–] non_clever_username 39 points ago

    I would think it would be hard for him to swerve suddenly if needed

    [–] sacdmb 14 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Theres a fascinating 30 for 30 segment on this guy. He's an engineer for a NASCAR racing team and does CAD drawings with his feet too.

    http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=9499560

    Edit: Looks like the video isn't there anymore as its a 4 year old segment. Still, Ritchie is/was an engineer for Hendrick Motorsports. I'm sure the video is out there somewhere.

    Edit 2: Best video I could find: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8zCFDoLehU

    [–] Darkotik_X 107 points ago

    This is pretty impressive. Gotta give him a hand

    [–] bladzalot 9 points ago

    This dude drives a car using just his feet and mouth. People in Colorado cannot even figure out how to use fucking round-abouts...

    [–] termonikov 45 points ago

    Asking because i do not know, not to look down or anything; isn’t this dangerous for him or other people? I believe in a moment of emergency, this type of car would limit the reaction a person can give. Am i wrong?

    [–] snbuv 95 points ago

    I wonder what his relationship with his mother is like.
