BAD PARENTING: Alex Dobson is in serious trouble for posting a video of his five-year-old son performing doing burnouts in the family car - a V8-powered sedan. Image: Facebook / Alex Dobson

Queensland, Australia - "When your 5 year old says... Dad, can I do a burnout? Sure son, no worries... Remember a car addiction stops a drug addiction."

That's what Queensland resident Alex Dobson wrote on his  Facebook page  when he posted a video of his son performing a burnout in his Holden Commodore.

'Questionable parenting'

Since then, the video has been viewed more than 4.5 million times.

Unsurprisingly, the video has landed this petrolhead father in some serious trouble with police and Child Protection services in Australia, reports News.co.au.

Dobson's V8 Commodore, which serves as the family car, has since been impounded, pending an investigation into Dobson's "questionable parenting".

Dobson believes he's child was not in any danger.

He eventually came out and said he realised the error in his judgement following the backlash, not to mention authorities paying him a visit.
