10 year drives while Dad drinks

This report from News24 today:

Bloemfontein – Traffic officials couldn’t believe their eyes when they pulled over a car and found it was being driven by a 10-year-old boy.

Volksblad reported on Tuesday that the boy’s father was sitting next to him, drinking a beer.

A baby was also in the car at the time.

A traffic department spokesperson said officers noticed the Toyota Corolla was driving erratically in Bloemfontein on Saturday and pulled it over.  

The boy was apparently sitting on a cushion, and was not wearing a seatbelt.

According to Volksblad, the father told officials that the child wanted to drive, and he had agreed.

The father was fined R1 000 for allowing a minor to drive without a licence, and a further R750 because the car’s licence had expired. The car was impounded until the fines were paid.

The spokesperson told Volksblad that the father’s actions were highly irresponsible, as he was showing his son it was okay to drink and drive and drive without a licence.

Some people just should not be allowed to breed and keep passing on the “stupid gene”.

But even more alarming to those that still retain a modicum of common sense is that the fine is nothing more than a “slap on the wrist”.
