An Australian man has been remanded in custody after police found him driving without a steering wheel.

The 38-year-old was pulled over in the Adelaide suburb of Gilles Plains on Monday morning for dangerous driving with two blown tyres.

On closer inspection police discovered that the white Holden sedan was being controlled with a set of pliers, which had been attached to the steering column.

i just KNEW this was going to be about an Australian when I read the title.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Vise grips not pliers...and with power assisted steering they would theoretically work....but not at speed or on the road.

Still..it takes a bit of skill to do something like that.
But it makes me wonder if this guy ever entertained the concept that he'd be pulled over eventually for something.

Then again, what WAS he thinking to begin with?

If he could of steered the vehicle without using Vise-Grips, the police might have let him go because they would of been so damn amazed.
