When it comes to British driving regulations, it seems no citizen is short enough to fly under the radar.
A recent viral social media photo shows officers of the Cheshire police department jokingly pulling over a toddler. The young girl was riding around their cruiser in a small toy car and the cops responded by pretending to administer a breathalyzer test.

The police department released a cheeky statement to ABC News explaining the situation:
“The officers were naturally suspicious, and after her parents revealed she’d had a couple of bottles that morning, they played along and pretended to take a breath test. Thankfully, the tot’s reading was clear and she was free to go.”
Following the jokes, the statement got serious, explaining that the photo was a “great example of showing how officers are human and that they like to talk to all members of our society, no matter how old they are.”
