Barbie Jeep Gets Parking Citation
Attention Barbie Jeep Drives of Utah: parking your jeep on the sidewalk will result in a citation from your local authorities. While playing outside recently, seven-year-old Autumn and her sister left their Barbie Jeep parked on the sidewalk blocking their neighbor's driveway. While normally such an infraction would result in towing, the officer wrote the girls a ticket--issued to Barbie-- and moved their car to their driveway, complete with an abandoned vehicle tag. While there was no fine attached to the ticket, Autumn has learned her lesson and will not park her Jeep on the sidewalk again.
While this may seem a bit excessive, the officer told CNN, "We wo
uld hope that people would appreciate the fact that we're there in their neighborhood and we're looking out for them and their property."
