A woman is being questioned by police after a young child in Perth was filmed riding on the roof racks of a auto for more than 10 minutes.

A spokesman for WA Police yesterday told News Corp Australia there were two other children in the auto but they were properly restrained in their seats.

In a video obtained by Australian news outlet 9News, the boy was shown clinging on to the roof racks of the SUV for more than 10 minutes last Friday (Jan 4).

Attempts by other motorists to alert the mother by flashing their lights and beeping at her failed.

"The child seemed fine and looked like he was enjoying himself", a witness said.

Police are now investigating.

Samsung also noted that iTunes will work seamlessly with its onboard search, as well as with its Bixby AI assistant. The TVs will also include support for AirPlay 2 , Apple's wireless streaming standard.

It is not clear whether the woman knew the child was on the roof of the vehicle.

Police investigating the incident said after motorists alerted the driver, she "stopped and placed the child in the auto before driving away".

Two children were secured in auto seats, but the four-year-old was allegedly unrestrained.

Witnesses claimed when the woman got out of the auto she genuinely seemed unaware her son was sitting on the roof. When the 36-year-old unnamed woman, who was driving the vehicle, was questioned about it, she claimed she did not know her son was sitting on top.

Canning Vale police responded to reports from concerned witnesses, and found the woman driving into a petrol station on Nicholson Road in Harrisdale.
