Boy, 6, Filmed Driving In 155mph Car With No Seatbelt

Boy, 6, Filmed Driving In 155mph Car With No Seatbelt

A six-year-old boy has been filmed racing a Volkswagen Golf up and down a disused road without a seat belt.

A number of clips of the child driving the car at high speeds have surfaced on Instagram.

A man can be seen in the passenger seat, and at numerous points he encourages the boy to accelerate, as the car bumps over potholes and swerves through gaps in fences.

The boy is even encouraged to use the car's 'launch control', which turbo charges the car's engine in sports mode and propels the vehicle forward with great speed.

The man in the passenger seat can be heard pressuring the boy to 'open her up' and 'give her some'.

At another point, he says: "Whip her round, give it a little bit of power, go on, get up there."

In a different clip, a man off camera asks the boy how old he is, to which he replies: "Six."

It is not clear who the people in the videos are, nor is it known why anyone would not only allow a child to drive a car like this, but to also then share videos of the dangerous dereliction of duty online.

The videos first emerged on a page dedicated to the little boy driving, and since the Golf videos were uploaded, videos have been shared of the boy driving a Land Rover through a bumpy field - once again, a familiar voice can be heard encouraging the boy to 'power it' and 'drift it'.

In one of the clips, another passenger can be heard asking if the boy is operating the pedals, to which the man replies: "Yeah he's driving the whole thing. Nobody's doing nothing."

Clearly, no kid should be entrusted with the responsibility of operating a car - and neither should some adults in truth.

Earlier this month, police couldn't believe their eyes when they caught a woman trying to transport a double mattress in the back of a BMW convertible.

When officers pulled over the driver between Basildon and Colchester in Essex, UK, the woman attempted to justify her insecure load by telling police: "It's wedged in the seat so it's okay."

It's not clear what punishment - if any - was meted out to the woman, however, causing danger through irresponsible distribution of load in a car can attract a fine of £100 ($129).
