A Utah police officer issued a ticket to a vehicle blocking a driveway last week, but not just any vehicle – a pink, toy Barbie jeep.
According to ABC News, the Cedar Hills officer saw a car blocking the road, moved it out of the way and gave the car a warning. When the girls' father found the jeep the next morning, there was an orange violation ticket attached. The act was mostly a gesture to assure residents in the neighborhood that police officials are watching for violations.
"It's a warning tag we put on cars that tells owners it has to be moved in 72 hours," said Lt. Sam Liddiard of the American Fork Police Department. "It had nothing to do with the girls. It was his [the officer's] attempt at humor to let the residents in the area know that he'd been patrolling the neighborhood.”
The ticket did not actually have a fine attached to it, but CBS Las Vegas reports that the 7-year-old and 9-year-old have learned to keep their toy car in the garage.
