Police in Mexico gave a 6-year-old boy a ticket for 'reckless driving' after his toy motorcycle crashed into an SUV
CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) - Police in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez ticketed a 6-year-old boy for reckless driving, driving without a licence and not having his toy motorcycle registered after he crashed it into an SUV. The boy's mother, Karla Noriega, says police also impounded the child-sized motorbike that her son got for Christmas after he ran into an SUV at a park on Dec 27. Ms Noriega says she decided to go to the media and make the case public after finding out she would have to pay what she calls a 'ridiculous' US$183 (S$236) in fines before she could recover the toy motorbike. She says authorities dropped the fines and released the motorcycle to her son Gael on Wednesday after local newspapers published her story.
