Estonian police were shocked after stopping a car in a city centre and finding the driver was not only drunk but also blind.

Key Quote: "Despite the fact that I am blind, driving is something I enjoy, and I am in fact very good at it."

Well if Toonses can do it . . .

I think this guy deserves a Florida driver's license.

"Despite the fact that I am blind, driving is something I enjoy, and I am in fact very good at it."

Well, you can't say fairer than that.

Here I come!

SNORK! at Toonces!

(Kristjan's Estonian pal:)
"OK, Kristjan, here's what you gonna do. There are two towers in street. Wide apart, not to worry. You stay right in middle. Keep away from the right, because McDonald's there. I tug on your shirt when you get close to blue tent -- then you bear right a bit.

Easy as pie!

Oh, and lots of people all over, but do not worry. I honk horn for you."

"Look out, Aunt Shelly!"

My sister became a better driver when she went blind. Then again, she sucked at driving.

Hi, Lynn!

"Despite the fact that I am blind, driving is something I enjoy, and I am in fact very good at it."

How would he know?

Hey, what's the big deal? I've been blind drunk on occasion as well.

My grandmother did this - driving by braille. If she heard gravel, she was too far right. If we screamed, she was too far left.

Multiple snorks @ toonses

Doesn't his friend count as "vision correction", per his license?

Emairgensee! Emairgensee! Everybody to get from street ... !

Reminds me of the joke: "I want to die like my grandfather, peacefully in his sleep. Not crying and screaming, like the passengers in his car."

There's nothing to see in Estonia anyway, so it's not like the guy's missing any beautiful roadside scenery anyway.

Hey, it's not the same - toonces could see!

*LOLs & WAVES @ Hammie!!!*

*Waves @ Siouxie!!!*

*Waves (hognose snakes) @ Annie!!!*

Surprisingly Roger Clemens was not involved in this story considering his track record with bad decisions.

Driving blind, Drinking blind...wait, that's not the same story.

*Waves restraining order @ Hammie!!*
Get that snake away from me!
*smacks Doc Rick with Jose Canseco's book*

"It's ok, ossifer, I'm wearing my see-belt."

Wow does THAT guy know how to party!

You want to impress me Stevie, take the wheel.


He has been caught for multiple times on drunk driving, actually. He seems to have no intentions to quit the habit.
