Baby, You Can't Drive My Car

BEIJING (Aug. 28) - A woman in Hohhot (!), the capital of north China's Inner Mongolia region, crashed her car while giving her dog a driving lesson, the official Xinhua News Agency said Monday.

No injuries were reported although both vehicles were slightly damaged, it
said.

The woman, identified only be her surname, Li, said her dog "was fond of
crouching on the steering wheel and often watched her drive," according to
Xinhua.

"She thought she would let the dog 'have a try' while she operated the
accelerator and brake," the report said. "They did not make it far before
crashing into an oncoming car."

Xinhua did not say what kind of dog or vehicles were involved but Li paid
for repairs.

Only in Hohhot!

Probably even more disturbing is that I kind of understand where she is coming from . . .

This was a hot story LA. I wonder if the cops administered a breathalyzer test to determine if the dog or the lady, if not both, had been drinking prior to operating the motor vehicle.
