Woman to face court over child on car roof

Woman to face court over child on car roof”

A young boy is lucky to be alive after riding on a vehicle's roof basket along a major West Australian freeway, with police questioning a woman.

A spokesman for WA Police told News Corp Australia a 36-year-old woman is assisting police with their inquiries.

In a video obtained by Australian news outlet 9News, the boy was shown clinging on to the roof racks of the SUV for more than 10 minutes last Friday (Jan 4).

"Bystanders have waved the mother down previously... her comment is that "he likes it", one said, while another said, "She knew he was up there as they've done it plenty of times and been caught before".

The mother could face jail time if she is found to have knowingly taken her son on a thrill ride, 9News reported. Other motorists called police about 5.45pm.

Police later found the auto driving into a petrol station on Nicholson Road in Harrisdale.

It is not clear whether the woman knew the child was on the roof of the vehicle.

Officers say the four-year-old boy was unrestrained.

The mother of a four-year-old boy filmed riding on the roof of a auto as she drove on a Perth Highway has been charged with risky driving. She could be facing prison time if it is proven in court that she knowingly let her son ride on top of a moving vehicle.
