We're all for getting children interested in cars at a young age, but this disturbing footage surpasses all understanding: a four-year-old girl driving her parents down a Chinese freeway.

Far from being frightened, the parents appear to be giving their daughter driving practice, guiding her to watch for traffic and providing directions. After she passes an SUV at one point, Dad warns her: "Concentrate! Be careful when passing other vehicles." As the end of the video shows, the girl even has a set of stilts she's using to reach the pedals; she gets out — easily, since she wasn't buckled — so her father can take over.


While the preschooler handles herself well, that's beyond the point given the number of lives endangered. No one in this video — including the parents — should be driving anything larger than a Little Tykes Cozy Coupe.
