Woman drives toy car with son sitting inside on Chinese road

A woman was captured driving a toy car with her son sitting inside on a road in southern China.

The video, filmed in Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture in Hunan Province on May 10, shows two toy cars being driven along a road and running the red light to cross it.

The woman, named Gong, intended to push the two toy cars with the help of her friend to a nearby square where the kids could play with them.

However the pair thought it would be easier to drive the toy cars rather than pushing them.

Police moved the car toys out of the path of traffic and reprimanded Gong for her decision.
