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?

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.
