Fat woman wins drivers' licence back with diet

A 14-stone Chilean woman who was told she was too fat to drive has won back her licence after hiring a nutritionist to help her diet.

Gloria Retes, who is five foot three inches tall, was told by an official from Rancagua's traffic department that she was having her licence revoked as they believed her flab was a danger.

Mrs Retes, 46, has told the Las Ultimas Noticias newspaper that her attempts to embarrass the officials into returning her licence.

She said: "I cannot believe this is happening. I've been driving since I'm 19 and never had an accident! And the doctor who saw me had a belly bigger than mine!"

She says the licence has now been renewed after she showed them documentary proof that she had hired a nutritionist and plans to lose weight.

Comments so far:

I am confused, I thought only Americans were fat and had to be "dealt with" by the government?
