Here on MO, we’re all for getting kids on bikes and learning to ride at an early age but this is not what we had in mind. According to the video description, this kindergarten student had been riding his minibike to school for a couple of weeks before someone finally put a stop to it.

Admittedly, if I was this kid’s age, I’d probably think it was pretty cool. As a grown up, however, I get a sharp pang of horror seeing him cross the intersection in front of traffic with drivers who, thankfully, were alert and likely just as much in shock at the sight.

Remember folks, if you want to teach your kids to ride, make sure they wear proper equipment and keep them off the street until they’re old enough!
