"We can’t quite believe what happened next. The driver, who was born in 1938, coughed that he had been driving with no licence and no insurance, since he was 12 years old and somehow had managed to never be stopped by the police. 'Thankfully he had never had an accident [or] caused anyone an injury." the Facebook post read.
