I am probably going to have surgery on my left shoulder in a couple of months and have a question, in particularly for a LEO in Oklahoma. After my surgery I will have to keep my left arm immobilized for 3 to 4 weeks in a sling. So my question is, is it legal to drive with one arm in a sling? thanks for any replies.

It is legal for deaf people to drive... but I wouldn't recommend one armed people to do handstands, climb ladders, juggle or drive. I am sure it can be done, but not really well.

If it were made illegal, the ADA would have snit fits.

I had a friend in high school that used to ride a motorcycle with only one arm. He was a great rider and never had any issues.
