Are you kidding me ??

News in the BBC that for the past 6 months this 11 year old apparently used to drop his disabled dad off to hospital for appointments, and his mum to her job at Burger King.

An 11-year-old boy and his parents have been arrested after he fled Louisiana police in a car chase at speeds of more than 100mph (160km/h), it is reported.
The child's mother and father have been accused of letting him drive for about six months, the Associated Press said.
The pursuit began when a patrol car spotted the boy's car speeding on Interstate 310 near New Orleans.
Police gave chase but the car sped away, only stopping at a Burger King restaurant where his mother worked.
The boy had been driving home from a hospital where he had dropped off his disabled father for an appointment when the chase began, police told AP.
His parents have been charged with the improper supervision of a minor and allowing an unlicensed minor to drive - something authorities said had been going on for six months.
The boy was reportedly released to the custody of an aunt after being arrested for fleeing from an officer, reckless driving, speeding, passing on the shoulder, improper lane usage and having no driver's licence.

I remember driving a car when I was 13 years old, the average park the car in the garage, or reverse out, etc.. But nothing of this magnitude.. Frightening is the word for the moment. Any chance that this kid is an Arab, as we always seem to have the ambition to drive cars well before our time.

The way it is...
