DRIVEN TO EXCESS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Hold your horsepower, folks! Jaws were dropping at 7th and Montana as a five-year-old tyke rolled up to Our Favorite Starbucks on his very own Kiddie Vespa. "Now I've seen everything," I said, eyeing the scooter suspiciously, "I wonder what kind of mileage he gets?" The Vespa, manufactured by Peg Perego, is described in promotional literature as "a sporty scooter that is as fun as it is attractive." It features dual rear motors for high performance, a rechargable 8-volt battery and two speeds: 2.25 or 5 miles per hour. "The fun can go on and on," said one review. So can the parents, apparently. Just watch the father (pictured below) holding up the rear as his son took off for greener pastures ...!

I hate to be the wet blanket here, but I can't see any good coming from this! I mean a pre-schooler on a motorized scooter?!!! Come on!

That's probably why Dad stopped by Starbuks, he needed his own jolt to keep up!
