We're all for teaching yours children how to drive from a young age, but only under the right circumstances and in a safe, and controlled environment, not on a public highway with patches of ice…
If this video of an 8-year old girl driving her father's Audi A6 in Russia at speeds of up to 100km/h (62mph) is true and not some sort of a hoax, then her parents, both of whom were reportedly in the car at the time, need some lessons (of a different kind) themselves.
According to a number of Russian news portals, bloggers discovered the video on YouTube today and quickly traced down the girl's parents providing their names to the authorities who are now looking for them.
Even though the girl proved to be a better driver than many motorists who have made an appearance on our Offbeat News section, her parents, who have been identified as Elena and Dmitri Mikulchik, are facing several charges, according to a St. Petersburg police statement.
