The child was found on the on an A44 motorway lay-by early on Wednesday morning heading toward the city of Dortmund.

He had put the hazard warning lights on and placed a small warning triangle behind the car.

Once found, police said the boy told them: "I just wanted to drive a little."

How he was able to do that without a wreck is baffling.

Good grief, he's done it again.

German boy, eight, crashes parents' car in second high-speed joyride of the week

The child hit speeds of 110mph before crashing - days after his mother gave him a "stern talking-to" for pulling a similar stunt.

Third time would be a charm.

His mother said on Wednesday she had given her son a "stern talking-to" after waking up to find him and the car gone.

The mother is purely at fault and a complete idiot!!

Hide the blooming keys!!!

And then he does it again!!  The mother is the one who needs to go for a psychological counselling along with her son.

Thankfully no one was hurt, but if anyone had been, it would be the mothers fault. 

Something tells me he will be out on the public  roads again on his own before he has a licence.

Yup!

When I didn't want the middle knucklehead to drive anything, including his dirt bike. He couldn't drive anything.

He is regularly driving kart and as per police report he drove motor car on a closed/private terrain already.

And just like with my son's dirt bike, those bloody cart wheels would be stashed at a friend's house.

Unbelievable. If it happens again they should take his parents cars away.

Wow, some people are born criminals I think, won't be long until he starts taking drugs, steals cars, and joins a gang I'm afraid :-( .
