Some of our rich parents or parents with one single car try to show off by putting their minor kids as in charge for driving, without realising the consequences of the results. These parents must be arrested and given a severe term of imprisonment and should be both mother and father, so that the kid who did that, rots alone. The kids are also very stupid and haughty.
