Recently in Adelaide a man was pulled over by police using vice grips for a steering wheel with 2 blown tires and unregistered, unlicenced, uninsured, car already previously defected, found to be involved in a hit and run and gave a positive drugs test for meth and cannabis all after being chased half way across the city.

True Story!

Yep. Must make it interesting to read the speedometer.
