Legally Blind Driver

A Driver who is legally blind (yes, a legally blind driver) entered a pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle. He ran over a Penn State professor who was riding a bike. Anyway, what the hell was this person doing driving? I don’t know what how it affected him, but Fry’s eye doctor said his left eye had 20/200 vision and with the other eye, he could just count fingers and that eye was 3/200. This means in his good eye he would have to be 20 feet from something that people with normal eyes can see at 200 feet. It doesn’t sound very safe to me.

I understand it’s inconvenient to not drive, as I’m legally blind myself. Even if I could get a license or wanted to drive, I wouldn’t let myself because it would be unsafe and unfair to other people I might hit.
