POLL: Should Parents Ever Let Their Unlicensed Children Drive?
When, or is it, ok to let your children drive before they have their license? Vote in our poll!
On Wednesday night, an 11-year-old girl behind the wheel of a white Lexus mistook the accelerator for the brake and hit a home in Englishtown. With information from eye-witnesses, police learned that the car belonged to a Manalapan woman. When found and questioned, the woman admitted to letting her daughter drive the car, switching places with her after the accident, and fleeing the scene.
This incident prompts the question, should parents ever let their unlicensed children get behind the wheel of a car? Is it ok if they're a certain age? Is it ok if you are teaching them how to drive? Or, should children never be allowed to drive until they have a licensed permit? What do you think?
