So You're Blind, And You're Driving?
If you think it's obvious that someone pretending to be blind would know better than to drive, you would be wrong. As reported by ANSA:
An Italian man claiming benefit for blindness was caught driving a car and arrested Monday.
The unnamed man, 67, had claimed some 60,000 euros [$86,000 US] in benefits since 2003, tax police said.
The man was stopped at a spot check near Naples and countersigned a fine for not having his license on him, without realizing he was on a police database of people suspected of invalidity fraud.A careless criminal makes for easy police work. Here's the source.
