Teenager banned after driving with girl on car roof
A CCTV camera captured the moment the girl, who cannot be named, climbed onto the roof and lay face-down on 18-year-old Ryan McMillan’s car as he drove around at 10pm on March 23.
The girl has also been disqualified from driving following the incident in a car park in South Shields, South Tyneside, Northumbria Police said.
Pc Anthony French, of the force’s road safety campaign Operation Dragoon, said: “Some people may find this behaviour funny but if you choose to get involved in this kind of foolish activity it is only a matter of time before you are involved in a serious collision.
“Motor vehicles are not toys and one slight mistake can lead to a fatal incident that will destroy lives forever.
“We are delighted to see that the magistrate has taken this case seriously and hope it acts as a warning to other young people who find it acceptable to mess around behind the wheel.”
