do not drive until you can get it fixed. it is dangerous and could cause an accident or worse

why didn't mechanic seem concerned?
what could happen?
I have been driving around for a month
Now I'm freaked out!
Listen to what Roy said.
I wouldn't let you leave my shop until you read and sign a liability weaver which explains the danger of this condition. Probably you will also need to replace more parts by now.
