* In the comic book series ''TopTen'' there's a blind taxi driver that steers by fate. He and his passengers always arrive where they need to be, but other people in the way...not so much. * During the early days of ''JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'', Dr. Mid-Nite was sometimes shown to drive the car. While Mid-Nite can ''technically'' see due to a special visor that plays off the fact that he can only see in total darkness, there's no way he'd ever get a proper license.

* Season 5, episode 6 of Series/TopGear featured Jeremy Clarkson coaching Billy Baxter, a blind veteran of the British Royal Horse Artillery, around the track in the Suzuki Liana to prove that Richard Whiteley (who held the record for the slowest lap at the time) really was a bad driver. The blind man went a full four seconds faster. ** The [[TopGearUS American version]] had this in the second episode. They held a challenge to see who could drift better: Adam, Rutledge, or a blind man coached by Tanner. [[spoiler: The blind man and Tanner won.]] *** The post-apocalypse episode had a challenge where the hosts had to navigate their way from point A to point B using only their GPS, as the car's windows were blacked out. Among other things, they ended up going right through a chain link fence at one point.

A subtrope of AreYouSureYouCanDriveThisThing. \n Frequently overlaps with DrivesLikeCrazy, though most of the perpetrators of that trope don't have this trope as an excuse.

* Happens twice in ''TheMentalist'', both times by the titular character. The first time he is temporarily blind and guided by Grace in the passenger seat, while the second time he is blindfolded and guided by the ''[[UpToEleven unconscious reactions]]'' of Walter Mashburn in the passenger seat. Surprisingly, he fares much better in the latter case.
