If you've ever tried traveling with a tot in a stroller, particularly on public transportation, you know the sweat and stress involved. It's maneuvering that rivals Nascar, especially if you have bags with you.

There's a dad in New York City who started a petition to allow strollers to remain unfolded on public buses.

His petition currently has over 1,000 signatures, with a goal of 2,000.

Eran Livne, daughter of 21-month-old Alma, wants the MTA to allow strollers to remain open on buses, just like wheelchairs.

Some parents say kids should be given the exact same rights as people with disabilities.

Others feel like strollers clog the bus, train, and other forms of public transportation, and they're against it.
