Lewington pulled his son along for nearly a mile, passing a police station on his route, and he was even photographed in the act. Even though his son was wearing a helmet and goggles and Lewington reportedly never drove above 8 mph, the courts didn't look upon the stunt as child's play.
If nothing else, Lewington's demo is a sure sign that America's crazy parents aren't so different from England's crazy parents. Here's what strikes us as almost as bizarre as Lewington's behavior: with ten inches of snow on the road, what's a Lotus Elise doing out there?
