eight-year-old-drives-his-sister-to-mcdonald-s-3-med

Remember when you got your first bike? The BBC reports on an eight year old that skipped the training wheels and went straight to driving the family car to McDonald’s, with his sister in the passenger seat. It was a  surprise when police started receiving calls that a small boy was driving a vehicle through town. “The boy drove 1.5 miles (2.4km), covering four intersections, railway tracks, and several turns, Police Constable Koehler told Cleveland news outlet Fox8.”

The kid drove right up to the drive through window of his local McDonald’s and asked for cheeseburgers and chicken mcnuggets while his parents were asleep at home.  Staff thought it was a prank. While witnesses pointed out that the young driver obeyed all traffic laws and lights, the eight year old said he had learned to drive by watching YouTube videos. No charges were laid.
