We’ve heard of illegal mods before, but this is just plain ridiculous.
You shouldn’t be surprised to know that most of the street-culture mods found on various cars around the world are actually illegal since motor-vehicles are governed by various “safety” laws.
For instance, in the land of lowriders, the headlights need to be at a certain distance from the asphalt, while in the land Down Under, it’s forbidden to use a nitrous oxide system on public roads, or in this case, a homemade frying pan steering wheel. And if it wasn’t for a Mazda driver busted by the cops, we wouldn’t have known that.
According to the South Australian Police, cops were called Sunday, September 4th, following reports of a suspicious red Mazda driver who was loitering in the street. The 32-year-old from Adelaide was charged shortly after, and his car was impounded for 28 days after the officers found out it was unregistered, uninsured, had an altered number plate and a…metal pan instead of a regular steering wheel.
We don’t know what the driver was cooking, but the pan read 17-7-14-14-5; uncontrollable & driven to love only a Beating HEART RIP [and possibly a doodle?].
The man will reportedly appear in court in October, and we’re looking forward to seeing how this whole situation…pans out. Although, we’re also interested to find out what those writings mean.
H/T to Jalopnik!
