An American Fork (Utah) Police officer with a sense of humor wrote a fake traffic citation and placed it on a hot-pink Barbie jeep blocking a driveway.

The officer made out the bright orange adandoned vehicle tag to "Barbie" and moved the toy jeep out of the road, reports the Deseret News. The jeep had been left out on the sidewalk by 7-year-old Autumn.

Police told ABC15 they hoped the citation would show neighbors that police were in the neighborhood looking out for their vehicles.

Very cool. I open the door at the elementary school every day and to spend time with the future is so important to them and the police. This was a cute idea to make a fun contact with the police.
