Parents arrested for filming their 10-year-old boy driving a BMW
thinkSPAIN , Sunday, January 24, 2016

A COUPLE who filmed their 10-year-old son driving their BMW has been arrested in the Spanish-owned city-province of Ceuta on the northern Moroccan coast.

The father, an Italian national, was in the front seat and talking on his mobile phone, paying no attention to his son at the wheel, whilst the boy's mother, a Moroccan woman, videoed the child's capers from outside the car.

Guardia Civil officers caught them on on the seafront promenade in the Juan XXIII area of Ceuta at around 19.00hrs on Friday, and pulled them over when they realised the driver of the BMW X6 was a very young child.

The couple's daughter was in the back seat at the time.

Police impounded the vehicle and took 46-year-old M. S., an Italian national and his wife, N. I., 35, into custody, where they were charged with causing a danger to other road users.

The two children's mother was released with charges so she could look after them, whilst their father remained at the Guardia Civil station waiting to attend a preliminary court hearing.

In Spain, even adult learners are not allowed to drive unless they are with a registered instructor in a driving school car.

The minimum age for learning to drive is 18, and the law forbids them from practising with their parents, older siblings or adult friends, even off-road.
