1999 Ford Escort Question: is it safe to drive my car if it has broken rear springs?

I have been told by a trusted mechanic that both rear coil springs are completely broken. can I continue to drive this car? what are the risks? -
Answer 1
I was told recently by a mechanic, my right side rear coil spring looked dangerous. He instructed me to be careful when driving. I can't afford a new or newer car and will take my chances. I have a later model Ford Escort. -
