Gwyneth Paltrow did what on a scooter with her child on board? Add to ...

Is Gwyneth Paltrow the worst driver in Los Angeles or just another busy mom pressed for time?

As reported today on TMZ, the Oscar-winning actress displayed shocking bad judgment last week when she cut off a school bus on her Vespa scooter with one of her own young kids on the seat behind her.

According to the TMZ report, Paltrow and her husband Chris Martin were picking up their children from an L.A. private school when Paltrow, with one of her children in tow, darted out into traffic and into the path of an oncoming school bus.

As evidenced in the video, the bus driver had to slam on the brakes to prevent from running into the actress, who then scooted away with the child into L.A. traffic.

Paltrow and Martin married in 2003 and have two children together, daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, 8. It’s unclear from the video which child was sitting on the back of the scooter.

TMZ reached out to Paltrow for comment on her bold driving move but hasn’t received comment, which is hardly surprising. What could she possibly offer as an excuse?
