In an indisputably bad parenting moment, a father has recklessly let his 6-year-old behind the wheel.
The footage, which first emerged on Instagram, has enraged people all over the world. It shows a boy hurtling down a road at lightning speeds.
Continue scrolling to see the shocking footage, and find out more about this horrific parenting decision.
Baby on board.
Rules of the road.
However, this particular incident will most likely garner a pretty unanimous response...
via: InstagramSurely we can all agree that this is definitely a case of bad parenting.
Kids should be riding bumper cars.Not getting behind the wheel of Volkswagen Golfs... I mean, a 6-year-old can barely reach the brake pads!
Back when I was a kid...
The rich kids had these...
The poor kids had these...Or at least the shopping malls we skulked around in had these.
This isn't the first kid driver to go viral.
via: YouTubeAlthough in the case of young YouTuber, Jack, who uploaded a video of him "stealing his mom's car" back in 2017, the whole thing was a hoax. Using a fake steering wheel on the passenger seat Jack and his friends fooled audiences. To this day, his prank video has garnered over 230,000 views.
The absurdity of it.I think the popularity of videos of dogs and children getting behind the wheel is because it seems so absurd.
This one already feels like a meme...
via: YouTube/ CBSAs shocking as the footage of the 6-year-old actually driving the Volkswagen Golf is, this news story from CBS about another young boy getting behind the wheel is actually really cute.
This dog genuinely seems like a good driver!The passenger appears more than comfortable with their dog taking the lead in driving this electric scooter down the street.
Who is Mr. Chill?
via: InstagramThe passenger in the footage may well be blurred but from his crossed arms and general disposition, it seems as though he is perfectly comfortable with the little boy driving.
Its true adults can be bad drivers...But that does not justify a young child getting behind the wheel.
The open road.
via: InstagramIf there's anything we can say in defense of the parent who, not only allowed, but also videoed his little boy driving, is at least they chose a desolate area. If they had been on a busy street the parent might have got busted by the cops!
Pretend driving is just as fun...And when a child drives a mini-electric car, it's not illegal and the threat of injury is removed. So a win-win, right?
Self-driving Vespas.What once seemed like a far off future dream is now a reality. Vespa have already launched a self-driving mode on their lastest vehicles.
The future is here.With self-driving cars, the argument of age-restrictions on driving could ultimately go out of the window.
Some people disapprove of kids at the wheel.
@Keubiko @NHTSAgov How about this jackass? He's letting his six-year-old kid "pretend" like he's driving on Tesla S… https://t.co/xnxF5FF9WK— KillingMyCareer (@KillingMyCareer)1569779575.0
