NINE-Year-Old Boy Arrested For Drunk Driving — Should His Parents Be Locked Up?

Mon, May 16, 2011 2:55pm EDT by 2 Comments

The baby-faced boozer was stopped and arrested after he failed a roadside breathalyzer test.

Police were stunned when they discovered his true age, and had to let him walk free — because under UK law he’s too young to be held responsible for his actions. Should his parents be prosecuted instead?

Newly released police records reveal this is just the latest in a spate of car-related crimes committed by very-young offenders in England over the past two years.

The shocking statistics prompted car safety charity boss Kath Hartley to call for road safety to be taught in British schools, saying, “It is incredibly concerning that young people are risking their own and other people’s lives on the road, this must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”

“Young people must be taught the dangers of getting behind the wheel without proper training.”

But isn’t it the parents’ responsibility to teach their kids right and wrong? And stop them drinking and getting behind the wheel?

Who would you punish and how?
