Community service for baby driver couple


audio Janice Wong reports
Parents who allowed their 18-month-old-son to drive a car have both been ordered to perform 160 hours of community service. They were also banned from driving for six months.

The couple were charged in August after a video appeared on Youtube showing the child on his father's lap holding the steering wheel while the vehicle was moving in traffic.

The magistrate in Kwun Tong court said the couple had committed a serious driving offence, because the toddler was incapable of controlling the car and had endangered other road users.
