More conversations with kids

This morning my 4 yr old asked what those lights were on the back of the cars. I explained to him they were brake lights. I then went on to explain why cars have them and what they are for.

So, what happens if they don't work?

Well, the people behind you don't know you're slowing down and could hit you. A police officer will pull you over and give you a ticket.

And then what?

You pay money and you take the car to a mechanic to fix it.

Mechanic has a big hook on the back?

No, honey. That's a tow truck driver. They tow your car to the mechanic.

Oh. So the money fixes the lights?

Yes, you pay the mechanic because he knows how to fix the lights.

When do I get to eat breakfast?
