The cars at the Rady Children’s Hospital are actually operated by a nurse or a doctor, and are part of a new program designed to make children more relaxed before their procedures.

“The kids are having fun. The parents are seeing that they’re relaxed and that they’re happy,” said Dr. Daniela Carvalho, medical director of surgical services at the hospital.
