An 11-year-old boy in Klang has been arrested after he was filmed driving a silver Proton Saga on his own. The South Klang police also arrested his father and seized the car.

The driving incident is said to have taken place on Friday (9 June) around 5pm at Jalan Banting-Pandamaran (Jalan Kampung Pendamar, Klang).

In the viral video, the young boy could be seen driving the car and slowly making a right turn at the junction.

The boy then rolled down the window to talk to the other children. The other children could be heard scolding him for doing such a thing.

The children said they would tell his father and jot down the number plate.

The police made the arrest on 11 June around 1.15am after raiding a house in Pandamaran, Klang.

The case is being investigated under Section 39(1) of the Road Transport Act for underage driving and Section 111 of the same act for abetment of offences.

Upon conviction, it carries a fine of not more than RM2,000 or imprisonment for not more than six months or both and losing the right to drive or getting any driving license.

The case is also being investigated under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2001 for child neglect, abandonment, or exposing the child in a manner that’s likely to cause the child physical or emotional harm.

Anyone found guilty of that faces a fine not exceeding RM5,000 or imprisonment for not more than 20 years or both.

The police advised the public not to be complacent and constantly watch their children’s movements so they do not take part in dangerous acts that could harm themselves and others.

The police also asked the public to refrain from sharing videos or any content carelessly to protect the image and privacy of others. Instead, the public should take the matter to the police instead and lodge a report.

Netizens commended the children who scolded the boy in the driver’s seat. They believe the child who reprimanded the boy could be a school prefect or a class monitor in the future.

Another person said the boy was lucky to have good friends who dared to advise him. They think good friends like these will save a lot of young lives.
