The real stupidity here is not that the parents let the kids drive the car, it`s that they put it on youtube.

How`s that kid reaching the pedals? besides that, i don`t see anything wrong with it, they did say it was on a CANADIAN road so it was probably deserted ;) JK. c`mon...

retared people!

its honestly not that dangerous, the road seemed empty and the kid was better at driving than many adults.

AND it was an automatic not a manual (or stickshift for retards), and therefore could be driven by a 2 year old.

Now what would be funny would be for the boy to have slammed on the brakes, stopped and screamed Really loud for no reason.

What`s the problem?
I`ve also been driving at that age (ok, I was 8) and so did all at my place. As long as I couldn`t reach the pedals I was sitting daddy`s lap, steering and shifting, later all on my own. Quite common.

ass in cruising world or any driving game, The only problem I have is that they should have been wearing their seat belts.

OK. The explanation is really simple. Underage kid driving a car = illegal.
Moron videoing a crime being committed where himself and others in the video are guilty, then posting it on YouTube = stupid.

If you commit a crime, DON`T RECORD IT!

Yea, I know that many people drove while very young, but did the adult with you record the whole thing then post it online? Didn`t think so.

Big whoop.

Also, I can totally believe the `allegations` that the road was clear. It`s Canada. The roads are always clear.

I agree with Nidonemo, but i do agree with the police, the parents were lucky nothing actually happened to them while their son was driving, the police have to do their job, or there would be no use for them. Its more about what could happen. The parents should at least have responsibility in the matter, it shows negligence and they werent being safe about it, i can understand old country roads and driveways being alright, but those are at max 25-30 mph. They say that even bad accidents happen at 30mph. I agree that they shouldnt be worrying about stupid things like this on the news, but its also to help find the parents. To let a child drive on a road (and you cant believe allegations that the road was completely clear) especially unrestrained (can always let the child sit on your lap) and the rest should be restrained as well.. its their own stupid fault if they get in trouble, they were dumb enough to post it online.

Oh so what. My dad let me do this when I was a kid. Not that fast obviously but I don`t see much wrong with it, providing it`s not done on a busy road.

I dont really have much of a problem with this. I would prefer that people were properly restrained in the car, and that the kid could actually see out the windshield, and they were going alittle slower. But its better to have the parents there then to have the kid steal the car, which has been happening more and more.

What`s the big Ally McDeal? I used to sit on my parent`s lap and steer the car on quiet streets when I was as young as five. I drove cars around large properties when I was about nine or ten.
At least the kid is with his family, driving under supervision.

who gives a drat about this..? hes just driving a car at 40mph...on an empty road in most of the video no less... at younger than seven, myself and many others are driving ATVs at over 40mph thru dangerous paths, and an ATV is much more dangerous than a car... it angers me that people are making this into such a big deal... how is this any worse than a 15 year old driving? yeah, hes younger, but so? you can say his size makes it bad, there are short people driving. my driving instructor when i took my road test was about as tall as a nine or ten year old... his experience cant be a problem either, because everyone starts driving with ZERO experience. in fact, old people driving is much more dangerous than a little kid driving..

"I love how people freak out over someone letting their kid drive in Canada when tons of worse stuff happens in the states."

Because we`re focusing on the kid driving. Not the pharmaceutical companies and war machines and all that nonsense. We`re talking about a kid driving a car. Nothing else. That`s the topic.

We`re overdue for religious debate, I`m pretty sure someone`s gonna see the Virgin Mary in a broken toaster or Jesus on a birthday cake slice and then you can waggle your crap with everyone else.

Now: Kid drives car.

Uhh, who exactly, is freaking out?

And regardless of which side of the border it happened on, its still quite serious. A seven-year old kid with his family`s lives in his hands. Driving is a privelege, not a right, and this is just absolutely stupid.

I think it`s not a really huge deal, especially since it isn`t a manual, though he was going kinda fast.
If I had a farm with enough space and a crappy slow car I`d let my kids practice if they were underage, but not if they were really underage. 12+ probably and I`d make sure they wouldn`t go too fast.

I drove when I was 7 years old, but I sat in my dad`s lap and he had his hands on the steering wheel while I turned it. I only got to do it for about 5 seconds, and I was in the middle of a field.

This is just ridiculous. What if a moose popped out onto the road and the kid got killed?!

They found the father. It was not that big of a deal since it was a private residential road that lead to a farm.

The kid had learned to drive a gold cart 3 or 4 years before and it was not his first driving lesson. It was dangerous but not as much as the news make it appear.

A lot of info is just not mentioned to make the story look more shocking then it should be.

tldr: It was about as dangerous as go-kart racing.

I drove once when I was like 8... but that was in the middle of a desert, so not much to run into for about 5 miles in all directions.

Dextrine: For the record, IQ doesn`t measure how much you know, but how much potential you have to know stuff. It`s how intelligent you are. Being older is not a measure of greater intelligence, or greater intelligence potential. It`s like that game show "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?". It should be "Do You Know More Than a Fifth Grader?", because it`s all about knowing stuff, not being smart. Take Stephan Hawkings for example. He may not know the capital of a certain country, and the fifth grader might. Does that really mean that the fifth grader is "smarter" than Dr. Hawkings. I don`t think so.

It`s the same as an adult driving. Probably has the same IQ as most drivers anyway.
