what did you do with the nut holding the steering wheel?

Did you not notice the tow away guy towing away your vehicle?

Well lets be honest here, how would you get the steering wheel back on if you are remote from the vehicle.

What sort of 'cigarette' did you light up?
Yes we all believe you stopped in the fast lane of a Mway and had a giggy and are still here to tell the tale.
Whatever you do DON'T drop your dog end. Instant £50 fine.
After all you've been through too. There ought to be a law!
what did you do with the nut holding the steering wheel?
Jeez....scary situation but clearly you can't get it back on because the car has been towed. Hate to state the obvious!
I have one of those portable ashtrays for moments like this, very handy.
Mamy, the keyring type??? I have one of those :-)
Oh no, tis a little pouch thing - a keyring one would be great.
Did the mechanic that towed you away have white wings?
You may mock but I had a similar experience in that I had a few nights previously driven a long journey at 69.99999 mph down the motorways. Then I took the car to the shops and on the way back home the steering just stopped controlling the wheels ! I could spin it to no effect. Luckily I was going very slowly through a part where the road had parked cars and it was difficult to get past. Had to roll back to as near to the kerb as I could and await recovery. Had the full fault developed that other night I'd probably not be here to tell the tale.
Ah, but did you think it was supposed to go wobbly, like the OP // i first thought that it may have supposed to do that, // ;-D
wander around with a steering wheel in your hand, seems best idea, stay in the third lane though
Me too OG, I was going round a sharp bend when my bolts sheered off. I was grateful for that because it meant I was going slow enough to avoid disaster.

Anyway, I'd recommend paying the tow guy some money. He might give your car back then. By the way, smoking is bad for your health. Wondering around the fast lane is ok though, keep it up.
Many moons ago I was driving a Ford Zodiac very late one night with a young lady I shouldn't have been with and possibly one cider too many, I was rounding a long sweeping corner when the steering wheel came off in my hands and I crashed into a wall, no one injured but circumstances dictated I had to high tail from the area promptly and leave the car embedded in the wall, I was arrested the next day and spent a week locked up. those were not my best days, isnt it a good job we grow up.
You were doing more than 40 mph on a motorway? Gosh.
I had a similar but different situation when I was driving along, all of a sudden none of the gears were where they should be - the gear stick just waggled about all over the place. Scary - but I wasn't on a motorway, and I don't smoke.

Of course its all nonsense, methyl. ;)
But its quite entertaining, harmless nonsense, don't you think?
