Navi Mumbai: Hemangini Patil, the Vashi subregional transport officer, has appealed to parents to not allow their minor child to drive the vehicle as this is illegal and dangerous. She was speaking at the road safety week public awareness programme organised by Anup Achrekar and Neelam Achrekar of Dipiksha Motor Training School.

"Minor children driving vehicles can be dangerous," says subregional transport officer

“Many parents let their minor children drive vehicles. This is not only dangerous but illegal as per law,” said Mrs Patil. He appealed to parents to teach their children proper traffic rules so that when they are of legal age to drive vehicles they understand their responsibility as a motorist.
