Eight-Year-Old Boy Drives Down Motorway At 75mph As Adults Shout 'Overtake'

A video has emerged that shows a child, thought to be only eight years old, driving a car at 75mph along a motorway in Romania.

Loading…

The boy can barely see over the top of the steering wheel, but is egged on throughout the video by two adults in the car.

In the video he is seen overtaking a lorry at speed whilst the two adults, who are thought to be his parents, laugh in the background.

The video was filmed as the car sped along a motorway in Sibiu County, within the Transylvania area of Romania.

As loud folk music plays in the car, one of the adults can be heard shouting 'overtake'.

The kid then drives past the lorry at a great speed, clutching onto the steering wheel for dear life.

As for the two adults, throughout the video they can be heard offering some choice words of encouragement to the boy, even reminding him that he needs to indicate at one point.

Sure, it's important to indicate, but you've also got to wear a seatbelt, and - crucially - not drive a car if you're an eight-year-old who can't even see where he's going.

Bloody hell.

After the child, who was presumably terrified beyond belief, overtook the lorry, the passengers broke out into more hysterical laughter and the woman said: "We will practice some more, my dear."

You'd have to hope that the adults will be found and brought to justice. They made the bold move of sharing the video on Facebook after doing it, and it's been viewed more than 500,000 times.

That will hopefully give the authorities enough to go on. Remember kids, if you're going to break the law, it's probably best not to film the crime and then shared the irrefutable evidence on the world's largest social media site. Idiots.

Obviously, most of the people on Facebook who saw the video were pretty appalled by it, and most of them called for the police to launch an investigation to find the two adults.

One person said: "They are playing with their lives and the lives of others."

Another said: "They need to be fined."

Fined seems like a pretty light escape for them. Let's not forget that they let an 8-year-old child overtake a lorry on the motorway. Admittedly, you know that, but it bears repeating.

So far there has been no update on whether the police are going to get involved or not.
