Never under estimate the bond between siblings. It will move mountains, take bullets and in this case, lead an older brother to YouTube to learn how to drive just to take his little sister out for a bite to eat.
According to NBC WFMJ in Ohio, an eight-year-old boy from East Palestine borrowed his dad’s van and drove to McDonald’s with his 4-year-old sister because they wanted cheeseburgers. When officer’s questioned the boy he revealed that he learned to drive by watching YouTube videos.
“He looked up videos on YouTube on how to drive,” said officer Koehler, who adds that witnesses say the boy followed the rules of the road, stopping for lights and keeping within speed limits.”
While the idea of a small child operating a car is frightening at the same time you can’t help but admire the genius of this young man. Can’t drive? Go to YouTube, find a video and figure it out. He’s doing better than a good number of adults.
No charges have been filed against any of the involved parties.
