At least he had his booster seat!

This story cracked me up because the kid actually thought to get his booster seat. (I know this is serious and there was the potential that someone could have gotten hurt, but thankfully no one did.)http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071010/...bMlUTPvkSs0NUE

That is cute, at least he was conscious of his safety while he tried to drive a car.

Re: At least he had his booster seat!

Cute and ay yi yi. Yup, at least he thought to use his booster. I really wonder if he buckled himself up though. Being stuck in reverse instead of going forward may have spared him from the airbag deploying and harming him had there been a frontal collision. He was effectively RF from the description.

Re: At least he had his booster seat!

He may have gotten his booster, but I'd put money on he was standing up to be able to reach the pedals.

Re: At least he had his booster seat!

He may have just put in in reverse and the car started rolling, especially if it was parked in a driveway that was inclined.

Anyhoo, at least he had safety in mind! Glad no one was hurt.

Re: At least he had his booster seat!

I saw the story but didn't read it until now.

That is too funny that he got his booster.
