A 2-year-old toddler was unscathed after she crossed a busy Boynton Beach intersection - all nine lanes of it - on her own.

Yeah... I'd find it hard to believe a situation in which people did not stop/block traffic to save a 2 year old running around.  Thankfully, thats exactly what happened.. as you would expect normal people to do.

The article said nine lanes of traffic, not six.

When my sister was around 2-3 years old, we started finding her playing outside.  At first we yelled at each other for not shutting doors and not watching to make sure she wasn't following us out.  Then one time we found her wandering the neighborhood several streets over.  I initially caught hell for letting her get outside and putting her life in danger.  Then, that evening, right in front of everyone my sister casually undid the lock and just waltzed outside.

Until I know more, I'm not going to judge this lady too harshly.  Toddlers are smarter than people give them credit for.

Was she fleeing from a trio of incompetent kidnappers at the time?

Eh... I'm gonna side with subby on this one, it's six lanes of traffic and three turn lanes. TFA that people are going on about has a diagram, or check http://goo.gl/maps/UZmYS.

This specific mother does seem to actually be negligent, but toddlers are just smart enough to thwart attempts to secure the perimeter while having zero sense of self-preservation. It's surprising we don't have at least 25% of them wandering in traffic at any given time.

From TFA:
She wasn't scared at all; she was talking to the police.
She should never do that, of course. I'm hoping that as she grows older, she learns to avoid such dangerous situations.

But not before she had already crossed the road once.

Well.. there really is no excuse in this modern day.  They make child safety mechanisms for door handles (which cost less than a sandwich) and you'd better believe I've got them on all my doors to the outside.. because if I didnt, my 2 year old would certainly open the door for himself.

I had nightmares about falling asleep when I was on baby-duty and my daughter wandering outside.  CPS is really aggressive in my county.  Fortunately she wasn't a wander bug.  Around 3 or 4 she did come wake us up from a nap crying and saying she was so sorry.  After making sure she wasn't hurt, she calmed down enough to say "I'm so sorry I blew up your car".  Turns out she sneaked into the refrigerator to get a root beer out, probably dropping it in the process.  She popped the tab and when it started to hiss, she was expecting it to explode from pressure, so she ran it out side and threw it in the grass.  Guilty conscience.

My son, by age 3, was able to work almost every lock he came across.  Didn't help matters that he was always tall for his age and could reach the deadbolt on most doors. Fortunately his wanderlust didn't last long and never took him much farther than the front porch, though it did result in a sitter quitting on us because she didn't think she should have to keep such a close eye on him.
