Kids are in such a hurry to learn to drive today, aren't they?

Video has surfaced of a 1-year-old boy riding his toy car along a busy road in China, going against traffic.

The boy cruises along merrily until a police officer swoops into the roadway and picks him up. "He told me he had become separated from his mother and was looking for her," the cop said. Eventually, the boy and his mother were reunited. No word if they headed home in that luxurious toy car of his, though.

Perhaps the boy was inspired by the similar antics of this adult, who, unlike the boy in China, clearly should've known better than to take a toy out on a busy roadway.
