A police officer was surprised when a car nearly hit his vehicle on the road.
The officer went to investigate and was shocked to find a 10-year-old at the wheel.
The police in South Africa, saw the boy sitting on a pillow so he could see the road.
Although he was able to see ahead of him, the child still nearly hit the officer’s car when he drove around a corner.
The quick thinking boy, who was not wearing a seatbelt , immediately hit the brakes, to avoid an accident.
His 35-year-old father was sitting next to him drinking beer.
The car registration was expired and the father did not have a driver’s license.
The man told the officer that his son had begged him to be allowed to drive the Toyota, Corolla.
The father faces fines for committing several traffic violations.
