Earlier this year a disabled man received a penalty notice from the German police practically for being disabled.
Back in March Bogdan Ionescu was driving his bicycle on the streets of Cologne, Germany. Since Mr. Ionescu lost his right arm he had to get a modified bike in order to be able to hit the right brake on his bike with his foot. Even though he was driving the modified bike, the local police thought he was still violating the laws for road safety by driving with only one arm, thus they gave him a €25 ($34) fine. Mr. Ionescu’s story broke in the local news shortly after the ridiculous confrontation took place and it was later picked up by the national and even worldwide media.
Nowadays the German police has dropped the fine and have apologized to Mr. Ionescu. According to his own words, he’s extremely happy his trouble with the law enforcement ended this way.
