In a shocking video emerging from Pakistan, a 5-year-old was spotted driving through a busy road in Pakistan’s city of Multan.
The video, which has since been widely shared on various social media platforms, shows the minor confidently navigating the giant Land Cruiser SUV on a busy highway. The video has left netizens fumed spotting the boy standing upright to reach the pedals of the SUV as he drives through.
Interestingly no adult was spotted alongside him in the Land Cruiser.
Surprisingly, no traffic cops spotted the underage driver nor was he stopped at any police check points in the city’s busiest roads.
The police have now swung into action as they are on the lookout to identify the young boy’s parents. Action will be taken against the parents for putting the lives of the child and others in danger, chief traffic officer Zafar Buzdar said.
The video clip has prompted anger and concerns among the viewers even as the issue of underage driving has surfaced.
Taking to Twitter, the video was shared by a user named Talha, with a caption, “A small kid driving Land Cruiser in Multan. How’s his feet even touching pedals? Whose kid is this.”
In the comments section, several people criticised the boy’s parents for letting him drive at such a young age and said it would put him as well as others around him at risk.
No report of any accidents have been reported so far.
