Steve Simonar lost both arms in a boating accident almost 20 years ago. He taught himself to drive a specially modified vehicle using only his feet. But he still can't buckle seat belt. And one Sasktatoon police officer wasn't going to cut him any slack. He gave Simonar a $175 ticket for driving without wearing a seat belt. Prosecutors later dropped that charge after Saskatchewan officials granted Simonar a medical exemption from wearing a seat belt. But Simonar says he still hasn't gotten an apology from the police.
