Yeah, that too always "gets me" with motorists... you know, all the work they have to do to avoid hitting cyclists and pedestrians... let's see...

Keep eyes on the road... check
Actually pay attention to what you see... check
Move foot and or hands to avoid hitting things... check

Whew... so exhausting. Especially that moving the hands and/or feet part. Must really be tough to do in a 4 wheel couch, eh?

Actually, she was riding a trailer bike attached to a dad's bike. It's the equivalent of a kid behind the wheel of a car being towed by a tow truck.

The camera is in a physically impossible spot unless like Hollywood she's on a trailer.

So perhaps the person sniping this just needs better special FX.

You can't satisfy You Tube Kiddies. They already can 'prove' the universe is a lie and have the clips to cite.

So cute. It should be a commercial for share the road.
With a footnote that 'sharing the lane', and 'sharing the road' are two different things.

With all due deference to the child. With the amount of times she keeps moving around in the video. I highly doubt, that she would be able to maintain her line. If she wasn't being towed. Lucky for her that she is being towed. Because, Her bike helmet is on wrong. It sits on her head like a baseball cap. It is supposed to cover the forehead.

No worries there. Daddy is right behind on his bike.
Her helmet looks too small to me.
Yesterday I saw another poor kid being forced to ride with a leaning tag-along. Broken hitch I guess.

I did have an audible chuckle with that... I'm always finding myself jumping off the edge of the pavement into loose gravel or up driveways onto sidewalks (legal here) trying to yield to cars. I'm always thinking this in my mind while doing so. "Sorry, this five second interaction is such a burden for you, in the grand scheme of your 30+ minute commute."
