Police in a Utah town ticketed a pink Barbie Jeep because it was blocking a neighbor’s driveway, officials told a local television station on Monday.

Two sisters, aged 7 and 9, reportedly left the motorized vehicle in the street of their Cedar Hills neighborhood of American Fork when an officer saw it and placed it in their driveway.

Their dad woke up the next morning to a bright orange “Abandoned Vehicle” tag on the Barbie Jeep, KUTV reported. The “citation” was issued to the owner, “Barbie,” and did not have a fine on it.

“We would hope that people would appreciate the fact that we’re there in their neighborhood and we’re looking out for them and their property,” police told the station.

The girls said they learned their lesson and will keep the Barbie Jeep in the garage from now on.
