Completely agree with you Samurai.

The most important advice would be to teach responsibility by way of example. If parents drive with caution and obey the laws of the road their children will also have more respect for traffic laws and for those who travel our roads! However, if you allow your child to drive sitting on your lap, he's going to feel, now i can do it myself and tomorrow he can just take the keys to the vehicle and start her up.

Encouraging children to drive is irresponsible and I do not think this forum should be talking about such things, sends the wrong messages.

He hardly drew for 100 meters on a Void forest road where I saw a total of 10 vehicles in 30 kms or 3 hours streach, that too only steering with the Gurkha on Crawl

Peace guys!!, I am all for safe driving, this was was fun for 2 minutes or less

@ Mods remove post as appropriate.

@ Tejas, he cannot even get in to the vehicle by himself, not to mention drive away with keys!

Thanks
Sunil

I guess you do get the point now. Thanks, as sgiitk says even a sec can be a sec too many.

Besides it somehow seems very ackward to have a video of it on TBHP.

I was just a couple of days back writting on another post how dangerous it is to drive with child in front of the steering i guess in a vista (on that thread), and this video has popped up coincidentally so soon.

Take care. Lovely pictures and videos otherwise.

Thanks ACM,

I have reported my own post to mods, requesting them to remove it at there discretion.
just google for an article that I wrote for various other forums "the skill and art of avoiding accidents", like I said before I fully support safety and following rules.

Regards
Sunil
