Man on motorised wheelchair fined for speeding

An elderly man with disabilities, whose name was not disclosed, was found speeding down a busy highway in his self-made motorised wheelchair, police said Wednesday.

Though his actual speed was not known, eyewitnesses said he easily overtook cars and trucks on the highway, connecting the north and the south of the country.

Police detained and fined him for "driving a vehicle of an unknown type without a relevant permission," the police press service said.

The man, who had both legs and one arm amputated, said he "simply wanted to test his new invention", police said.
