8-Year-Old Drives Self and Little Sister to McDonald’s

I don’t see a problem with this. He probably drove better than most people on the roads!

An 8-year-old boy in East Palestine, Ohio, was reportedly caught by police after driving himself and his 4-year-old sister to McDonald’s for a dinner run. The child, apparently, taught himself how to drive via YouTube.

The Huffington Post reports: The unidentified youngsters snuck out of their home in East Palestine at 8 p.m. on Sunday after their parents went to sleep. 

During the mile-and-a-half long journey to the fast-food restaurant, the boy successfully navigated railroad tracks and multiple intersections. Concerned witnesses called the police despite the fact that the young, unlicensed driver had remained under the speed limit and obeyed all other traffic laws.

On pulling up at the outlet’s drive-thru window, the boy used cash that he’d taken from his piggy bank to pay for the cheeseburger.

A family friend who was eating inside the restaurant contacted the children’s grandparents and the children ate their meal while waiting for their parents to pick them up.

The Internet taught an eight-year-old how to drive in an evening, and I had to go through a bunch of tests with a learner’s permit? That’s some BS, if you ask me. How dare this child be smarter than me?! Also, how dare he be cooler than me?! This kid is my hero, and I don’t know how to feel about that.
