4 year old driver

[q]4-Year-Old Mich. Boy Drives Mother's Car

4 minutes ago Top Stories - AP



SAND LAKE, Mich. - A boy drove his mother's car to a video store in the middle of the night, police said — and he's all of 4 years old.



Even though he was unable to reach the accelerator, the boy managed to put the car in gear and the idling engine provided enough power to take him slowly to the store, a quarter-mile from his home, about 1:30 a.m. Friday, Police Chief Doug Heugel said. Finding the store closed, the youngster began a slow trip home.


Weaving and with its headlights off, the car got the attention of police Sgt. Jay Osga, who initially thought he was following a driverless car that had taken off after being left running at a gas pump.


The car turned into the boy's apartment complex and struck two parked cars, then backed up and struck Osga's police car.


That's when Osga discovered the boy inside.


"He knew how to go from forward to reverse," Osga said Monday. "The mother said she taught him how to drive by letting him sit on her lap and steer."


No charges will be filed against the boy or his mother, Heugel said.


"He's 4 years old. His mom didn't even know he was up," Heugel told The Grand Rapids Press. "I don't think he even realizes what he did." [/q]

Four years old!! I'm surprised he got as far as he did. My four year would not make it out of the driveway lol. I 'm glad no one got hurt. They will have some story to record in the baby books!

I used to let my son drive while sitting in my lap, but thank goodness he never tried to do it alone.
