Oh so many things could go so terribly wrong.
The month is still young and it already hasn’t been good for people on the road.
A five-year-old boy from Utah was pulled over earlier this week in an attempt to drive to California and purchase a Lamborghini.
Yep, just let that sentence sink in.
Traveling at only 32mph in a 75mph zone, the boy managed to pull over so that the officer, when realizing it was a child, could help him put the car into park and turn it off. Luckily the boy only made it a few miles from home, but if there’s one important lesson he’s learned that he’ll carry throughout life, it’s that Utah also sells Lamborghini’s. And that they’re not exactly what you would call cheap.
This event follows news from last week that Georgia has lifted—albeit temporarily—their requirement for teens to take a driving test in order to get their licenses. Yet another reason you should be staying home, Georgia residents.
Governor Brian Kemp signed an executive order that waives the driving test requirement in the license obtaining process until at least June 12th. The meaning of this action is to continue the social distancing process in the state, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s slightly more dangerous than not social distancing at all.
That doesn’t mean that teens can just grab the keys and hop in the car willy-nilly, though. The Georgia Department of Driver Services now requires teenagers to complete 40 driving hours with a parent or guardian, who must first give permission to the teen between 16 and 18 years old to complete the application. They must also have had a learners permit for at least one year with no violations, and complete a knowledge exam.
From a confident five-year-old boy to Georgia’s new driving test requirements, safety on the roads is starting to look worrisome. Here’s a list of some hilarious examples of what could potentially go wrong with these types of drivers (we hope not, of course).
A Smelly Hit And Run
If officially licensed teens are running over their own garbage cans, it only seems logical that these quasi-licensed teens are going to be running through trash cans like they’re Mario Kart item boxes.
A Spot With A View
A park job like this deserves some credit. When’s the last time you pulled something like this off? Exactly.
A Car Hits A Sign…Which Hits A Person
You think it’s all gone wrong until it goes wrong…again.
Car Hits Obvious Pole
Don’t worry, sir. You barely grazed it. That’ll buff right out. Your mom will never notice.
Well, At Least He Read The Sign Right
Prime example of what happens when you passed the theory but never passed a driving test. We’re sure the judge would agree that was a yield sign; not that it counts for anything at this point.
I don’t quite know how they did it, but they sure did it. Might need a bigger ladder to get that down, though…
Drive-Thru or In-Store Pickup?
Unfortunately, that is not how drive-thru works, and no, it doesn’t count as in-store pick-up either. At this point, don’t even bother paying for it. Just tell them to add it to the rest of the expenses.
A Little Too Much Freedom On The Freeway
A gorgeous sunny day, a semi-open road, a nice car packed with all your best friends, and not a smidgen of driving ability. It takes more than just turning a wheel and making the car go vroom to drive a car, kiddo, but we think you understand that now.
If You Thought The Open Road Was The Only Problem
To be fair, the blue car actually started decently. For one, it’s the only car actually parked within the lines. We’re assuming someone else parked the car, because that’s where all the good notes end.

Please, for the love of God and all that is good in the world, don’t make a TikTok while you’re still trapped inside a crumpled remnants of a car.
