A mother has been slapped with a $1,200 fine and a parenting advice after she was caught driving an unregistered car with her six-year-old 'jumping' in the backseat without a seatbelt.
The driver was travelling through peak-hour traffic in a Honda along a Belmont road in Perth's east last Friday when she was pulled over by police for a string of offences.
She was caught behind the wheel of an unregistered vehicle and speaking on her mobile phone while the young passenger was found unrestrained in the backseat.
'Peak hour 6 yr old jumping on back seat unrestrained, using your phone and unlic veh [sic] - parenting needs work,' Western Australian Police wrote on Twitter.
