Police in American Fork, Utah, issued a citation for a Barbie Jeep this week. An officer out patrolling a Cedar Hills neighbourhood noticed a pink Jeep parked in the road-blocking a driveway.
The officer left a bright orange tag on the hood that said "Abandoned Vehicle." The officer was concerned the Jeep could be stolen or involved in an accident so he moved it into the driveway.
Two sisters aged 7 and 9 reportedly left the Jeep in the street after riding around in it. When their dad woke up the next morning, he noticed an "abandoned vehicle tag" on the Barbie Jeep. There was no fine or notice on the ticket, though.
"We would hope that people would appreciate the fact that we're there in their neighbourhood and we're looking out for them and their property," police said. The girls say they've learned a lesson and will keep the Barbie Jeep in the garage from now on.
