The Vermont couple is facing criminal charges.

Two Newport residents were cited after someone sent in a picture of a man driving with a woman and a child on the roof of the car on Vermont 14, the Vermont State Police say.

The car was traveling 50-55 mph, police said. The child, whose name was not released, was 5 years old.

Authorities say the event occurred Sunday afternoon.

Nicholas Nobaris, 20, the driver, is accused of grossly negligent operation of a car. Lindsey Perkins, 27, the woman riding on top, is expected to face charges of child endangerment and reckless endangerment, the police say.

      It’s just too bad there’s not some kind of idiot detector we can use to prevent some people from having kids.
