It should be illegal for a 12 year old or a 14 year old or even a 1 year old to be the pilot of a scooter or motorcycle. And what is the age of consent in Cambodia?

It is.
Curious what the age of consent of Cambodia has to do with this?

It is, the minimum legal age for driving is 15 years:From PPP 27 December 2016

The amendments passed with support of 93 out of 100 lawmakers present, including acting opposition leader Kem Sokha. The original Traffic Law was signed by King Norodom in January 2016, with Prime Minister HE almost immediately calling for an amendment eliminating the requirement for a driver’s licence for any motorbikes 125cc and under.

"Yesterday that proposal officially became law, as did an amendment lowering the legal driving age from 16 to 15. Sun Chanthol, Minister of Transportation, insisted at the assembly yesterday that eliminating licences will not lead to more traffic accidents."https://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/ ... no-problem

Not sure of the connection you are making here, between legal driving age and and age of consent, but here's the info.
The Age of Consent in Cambodia is 15 years old. The age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity. Individuals aged 14 or younger in Cambodia are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape or the equivalent local law. https://www.ageofconsent.net/world/cambodia

How could a one-year old be the 'pilot' of a motorcycle ?
That was a ridiculous post about an awful aspect of life in Asia, young, inexperienced KIDS riding motorcycles.
