Driving in UK

March 12, 2007 at 4:33 am

After GBS in the UK in 1990 I could not walk properly for four years and my hands remain practically useless. I had become accustomed to being a passenger, but when my wife broke her ankle in 1994 everything changed. The British authorities allowed me to drive an automatic gearbox (her sports car was a manual gearbox) and I now drive 10,000 mi. a year in UK without difficulty, relying on the spokes of the steering wheel for directional control. I have minimal feeling in my feet, but it has not presented a problem.
