    Ring your local police and by rego they will be able to see where/who the car is registered to. If it is simply a private vehicle (not a hire car or regd to a dealership etc) they can get the local members to attend and speak to the owner or just watch for the vehicle (if it is in a rural community/small town).

    If the driver is continuing to put the kid at risk or refusing to change their behaviour after being spoken to, then child welfare authorities do get notified and become involved.

    Anyone who advocates exaggerating a report or lying is offering very BAD advice.

    If you had a dashcam and it was visible on the footage (or you filmed it on your phone) and you made a written statement then the driver would be able to be processed by police. Even a written statement (better if it is from more than one witness though) without footage would also be enough. Whether they get warned, fined or sent to court is essentially up to the members though, not the witnesses.
