Default 12-yr-old rams car into boy, woman in Delhi

12-yr-old rams car into boy, woman in Delhi

Quote:
A three-year-old boy was killed and a woman injured in Delhi after a 12-year-old boy rammed a Toyota Qualis into them.

The incident happened in the Paschim Vihar area of West Delhi when a family was returning after watching the Janmashtami celebrations.

Three-year-old Vivek was declared dead at the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital.

His aunt who was injured in the accident is said to be in critical condition.

Twelve-year-old Pawan, who caused the mishap, will be produced in a juvenile court later on Wednesday. The police is questioning the family.

that's right, and this must be punishable with non-bailable imprisonment to the dad or mom doing it.

it is quite common to hear parents trumpeting praises of their "barely legal" kids at the wheels.

this being one hazard,... the other is the habit of some dads or moms (mostly dads in pride of their puttars) allowing a kid to sit on their laps while driving and then in due course allowing the kid to take care of the wheel while he handles the other controls


anyone on this forum who is into such a habit, please refrain from it for the safety of yourself / your kids and others around, and educate others whom you see doing it.

Huh

12 yr old driving Qualis, Kya parents hain !! Kammal Hai !!

I think instead of punishing the kid in juvenile court, they should call his parents as well for being such responsible citizens.

the parents are more responsible rather than the kid who knows nothing more than watching cartoons or bollywood movie stunts and will obviously try to imitate them.

Its a shame on the parents...how would they feel if some other kid had killed this 12yr old boy in a similar accident? People should put themselves in others shoes and think before doing anything...an innocent life is lost, no one can bring the 3yr old back to life...imagine the state of the 3yr old's parents...

Absolutely irresponsible parents. Instead of the 12 yr old (not even in teens), the kid's parents should be severly punished and made to do community work as atonement or rather work as domestics in the bereaved family for a month.

Serious & responsible parenting is lacking these days. Ostentatious behaviour on their part is falsely construed as love. On a personal note, my son never got a single paise as pocket money during his entire schooling years in DPS. Only after he appeared for the XII the Board this year, he wa given a mobile since he was stepping into college. And incidentally he doesn't know how to drive either the Bullet or the two trucks. He has been asked to enrol into the Maruti Udyog's driving school now.

Really sad to hear such news.
The parents of the child should be punished instead of the child. This will serve as a lesson to all such parents.

May the Kid's Soul rest in peace

Shocking.

We really dont know whether the kid took the vehicle with the knowledge of their parents.

harsh punishment on the kid, dont know why everyone is dragging the parents into this.
punishing the kid will be enough punishment for the parents too.

The driving license of the parents should be cancelled and they should be tried instead of the kid. How did the kid get the keys and the confidence that he can drive, the fingers point towards his parents.

The popular opinion here is to curse/punish the parents. From personal experience (i.e. me as a kid), parents rarely know what mischief their kids are upto; mine surely didn't!
If they really have encouraged such stupid and irresponsible behaviour, I think their son's fate will be punishment enough. Most educated people nowadays are pretty responsible parents (or they love their cars too much, like me), so I think kick the kids a$$, but leave the parents out of it.

i think the fathers license and a heavy fine should be levied. the child should be given a severe punishment and should also be made to do community service. the three year old child lost his life for no fault of his and his aunt is suffering too all thanks to the irresponsibility of some parents. according to the new law if the child does not have a license the parents will be procecuted. the offence is a bailable one and the fine is just Rs 1200.

I disagree. Had it not been the laxity of discipline on the part of the parents, this would not have happened. Even the driver is to be blamed. How did he allow the kid to drive. The connercial driver's licence stipulates that the person holding such a licence is responsible towards the life and limbs of the occupants as well as that of the road users.

Till the child attains majority, it is the parents who are responsible for the child's actions.

Question

...and what do you say of the doctor couple from Tamilnadu who filmed their 15-year old son performing a caesarean section birth? Just for the record's sake.

In my layout also a person made his 3-4 year old kid sit on his lap while driving and handed over the steering. Result - they hit a Santro parked peacefully in the side. On top of it this gentleman argued with the owner that you claim insurance etc.

Without parental permission, how can a 12 year old get behind the wheel

A kid of 12 years hardly knows anything at all. It is the parent or the owner of hte car who put the kid behind the wheel is responsible and should be procecuted for nothing less than murder.
