    According to KWQC, the child was four. Four years old! Just a baby. They also listed him to have been riding a dirt bike, not a moped...possibly the laws are different? Either way, I hope he's ok...parents, keep an eye on those little ones!

    Yes, 14 is the minimum age for a moped or motorized bicycle permit.

    I thought you needed to at least have a driver's permit to ride on city streets. I could be wrong. Age 10 on a busy street is way too young.

    A child younger than ten on a moped on the road? Are there any regulations for operating mopeds?
