Driving tricks

I only post this because I'm pretty sure I was driving behind this guy on thursday:

Man drives 375 miles with no hands

An Indian man has driven 375 miles without using his hands in a bid to get into the record books.

It took 15 hours for R S Santhosh Kumar to drive from Parassala, near Thiruvanthapuram, to Kasargod with his hands tied to the driver's seat.

The jewellery shop owner controlled the steering wheel, brake and clutch with his legs alone, reports Vijay Times.

Kumar, from Neyyanttinkara in Kerala, said he had been training for the event for the past five years.

The event was monitored by officials of the Limca Book of Records, India's version of the Guinness Book of World Records
