"totally valid"? I am "legally blind" with some sight, and I definitely can not operate a regular vehicle in a normal "sighted" fashion.
Why must someone be 100% blind to make this experiment valid?

I ask this question because to make the challenge totally and 100% valid, the driver should be depending soley on the sensory technology. Mark once had a lot of usable vision to the point where he could read print. If he has any usable vision, was he by any chance wearing sleep shades? Either way, I'm still very proud of Mark. I know him and Melissa from Wisconsin but I honestly don't remember about his blindness.
