YouTube is a great resource where you can learn all kinds of things, such as how to paint your home, how to cook, how to apply makeup, how to build a house, and of course how to drive. Now we’re not saying that these tutorials are professional (some of them are), but basically you should use your own judgement.

However it seems that a tutorial on how to drive proved to be so effective that according to a report from WJW-TV (via Gizmodo), an 8-year took his 4-year old sister out on a drive to McDonald’s after learning how to drive on YouTube. The kids apparently waited for their parents to fall asleep before stealing their car and driving off to grab some food.

According to the report, “Officer Jacob Koehler said the child drove a mile from his home with his little sister in the back of the van. The journey took the 8-year-old through 4 intersections, over railroad tracks and also required him to make a few right hand turns and a left hand turn. Witnesses told police he did obey all traffic laws and drove the speed limit.”

It seems that no charges have been filed as it was decided that there was no neglect in this case. The children were found to have been fed their regular meals, but according to the boy, he just really wanted a cheeseburger.
