A local paper reported that a driver was stopped and cautioned a couple of year ago when he was found to be driving with a pair of mole grips round the steering column instead of a steering wheel.

I have some photos of another car that was stopped in a very rural area with a long length of garden hose wrapped round the wheel. Obviously the tyre had shredded at some point so the driver had kept wrapping hose around the wheel until the bulk of the hose meant that the wheel rims weren't in contact with the road.

You have to hand it to them for inventiveness, but perhaps no marks for common sense
