UPI News Service, 07/24/2013 

A Saskatchewan man with no arms won a court battle to contest a $160 fine for not wearing a seatbelt and he is now asking for an apology.

Steve Simonar, 55, of Saskatoon, whose fine was tossed out in court Tuesday, said his truck has been custom modified for his needs, but he is unable to wear the seatbelt, QMI Agency reported Wednesday.

Simonar, who lost his arms 28 years ago, said the seatbelt law was not on the books when he started driving again, and Saskatchewan Government Insurance has now issued him an exemption to the law.

The motorist said he gave police a note from his doctor a few days after receiving the ticket, but the issuing officer was "as arrogant and ignorant" as he was the day of the ticket.

"He said, 'I treat everybody the same, and you people expect things different,'" Simonar said.

Simonar said he has filed a formal complaint with the police service.

"I think he owes me an apology," he said.
