Does anyone know?
My Dad has had an operation on his arm and it is bandaged and in a sling, he can't use it, yet he insists on driving around all over the place. It is stupid and dangerous.
Is it even legal to drive if you only have use of one arm? Anyone know?

lol my dad just had his shoulder operated on!
(in qld anyway) it is illegal to drive for minimum 6 weeks, but the arm has to be fully usable to drive after that... i presume its the same everywhere...

not unless u have a special car i think. its illegal to cross your arms/either arm infront of you when driving, so if you've only got one hand and arent allowed to reach around the wheel, how can you indicate? i know you can get in trouble for only having one hand on the wheel unless you're changing gears, so i imagine that one armed driving is illegal.
i dont know for sure tho

Yes, but you must have a modified car - knob on the stearing wheel.
