The adult who allowed a child to cling onto the driver’s door of a moving vehicle has been reported to the police.

Video of the incident was captured by a stunned observer and circulated online last week.

The Children’s Authority issued a statement today announcing that it asked the police to investigate.

The Authority said the reckless move could have brought harm or death to the child.

Under the Children’s Act, it is an offence to expose a child to possible injury. 

The offence carries a fine of up to fifty thousand dollars and imprisonment of up to ten years.
