A heartbreaking and extremely dangerous situation. The policemen of Abbeville (Somme) had the unpleasant surprise, on the night from Sunday to Monday, of stopping a car without a license behind the wheel of which an 11-year-old boy was installed. On the passenger side, his father was completely drunk.
The latter, given his condition, had asked his son to take his place to return home. Fortunately, the police were able to put an end to the situation before an accident occurred, noting the small size of the driver, reports the Picard Mail. Lawsuits were filed against the father of the family. You must be prosecuted for breach of your legal obligations.
