A video of an eight-year-old child driving a Toyota Fortuner SUV in Pakistan has gone popular on social media.
In the video, the boy is seen with his 10-year-old sister. The girl introduces herself and her brother, explaining that they have arrived in their hamlet and that they would demonstrate how his eight-year-old brother operates the automobile effortlessly.
“Today we will show you how an 8-year-old youngster can drive a Toyota Fortuner,” a YouTube channel called “Ayan and Areeba Show” captioned the video three weeks ago. Ayan’s driving astonished everyone, and the video went viral.” Thousands of people have seen the video. Some people complimented the boy’s driving abilities, while others chastised him.
“There’s nothing nice to portray about,” stated a third user.
Ayan, dressed in a blue ‘pathani,’ opens the SUV’s door and drives along the road alongside a few other cars in the footage. The 8-year-old is seen perched on the edge of the seat to reach the gas and brake pedals due to his short stature.
As he drives the car with a smile on his face, he looks to be quite confident in his driving abilities. He says he’s been driving since he was six years old when asked.
Drivers in Pakistan are also restricted by their age. Only individuals who are 18 years old are granted a permanent driving license in both nations.
