The road trip might be a rite of passage. But, as a rule, it requires a driver's license.
In Australia, home of the apocalyptic Mad Max franchise, a 12-year-old boy was on a coast-to-coast trip, from his home in Kendall in New South Wales all the way to Perth on the continent's western side. He managed about 800 miles, or about a third of the way, of the 2,500-mile trip before police caught him.
He was pulled over and arrested near the remote town of Broken Hill on Saturday because the car's bumper was dragging on the ground.
