A clever lad, showing some independent spirit...

... though he'll get in trouble if he keeps this up:

Police in Ogaki, Gifu Prefecture, stopped a 9-year-old boy driving the family car alone to his grandmother's house Monday.

The boy had driven about 3 km — halfway to his destination — before being stopped, police said Thursday.

"I learned to drive by watching my father and at game arcades," the third-grader was quoted as saying.

As Monday was a national holiday, traffic was relatively light in the morning and the boy caused no accidents.

Police cautioned his parents to watch the car more carefully.

From here.
