A 32-year-old man has been criticised by police after he was caught using a frying pan instead of a steering wheel in Adelaide, Australia, last month. Police were called to reports of a suspicious red Mazda sedan loitering and approached its driver after it entered the car park of a nearby unit block. While speaking with the driver, police noticed the man's homemade steering wheel, and that the car's number plate had been altered. Police said the car was also found to be unregistered and uninsured and had recently been defected, but the defect label had been removed. The driver said he was “remorseful” and acknowledged that the DIY wheel was a "reckless and dangerous" idea.
