I don't know what to make of this

A two-year-old boy has been pulled over by police while driving his toy car.Oliver Smith was driving his toy car at 2mph on the pavement when he was pulled over by a policeman reports the Mirror.Oliver's grandad Derek was warned by the policeman that the boy could be charged for having no tax or MoT certificate.
Oliver's father Richard from Leyland Lancs said: 'My dad thought it a was joke at first - he was expecting Jeremy Beadle to turn up. The officer said the buggy could damage a parked car. He gave a warning and drove off.'I think it's utterly ridiculous. It's the funniest thing I have heard in my life because you can actually walk faster than these things. This one has a top speed of 2.5mph.'All the shops selling them should have signs to say you need driving documents to use them in a public place. Because of their size, you can't just use them in a garden.'
Lancashire Police said: 'We cannot comment on the individual case but a child's toy car that can only travel 2-3mph does not come under motor vehicle legislation. Having said that, we would always advise children not to play near to the highway.
'The ideal place for toys is in a driveway, supervised by a responsible adult.'"

Comments:
I heard the kid was wasted at the time, he was lucky the cop was so lenient...
 
Indeed
 
I always wanted one of those toy cars... never got one (awww, those sad childhood memories are coming back to me now).
 
Ridiculous.
 
lol...hilarious.
 
just plain silly
Swagato
 
Pity the yute didn't have a beer bottle in hand at the same time!

Did the Police check to see if the vehicle was insured!?

Utter shyte!
 
it must have been a slow day for the policeman down there
 
they better be glad it wasn't my two year old
 
That's called driving while short. You have to look out for dangerous characters like that.
 
Ok I'm convinced the whole world has gone crazy!!

That police office was bored, and needed to make his quota for the day...saw the little boy and said: "what the hey"!

Oh shoot that rhymes!! ~LOL~

The world we live! *shaking head sadly*

~Smooches~
