Three-year-old Declan Tramley was in for an exciting shock when he was given his first parking ticket, CTV News reported.

Cute Toddler Received A Parking Ticket

Canadian toddler Tramley loves riding his mini motorcycle down boardwalks, unfortunately he has not yet learned the finer points about parking.

Tramley wasn’t really paying attention to the signs when he decided to park his toy red motorcycle on the street in Halifax. Apparently, the young boy can’t even read.

Tramley took a break on his bike and parked in the wrong spot. Shawn Currie, who is part of the Halifax Police Department’s community response team, happened to be on patrol in the area and decided to have a little fun with the toddler, who had parked illegally.

As the boy parked the little red motorcycle and walked away, his dad caught Currie’s attention and they came up with the idea to write a fake parking ticket as a joke.

Currie came over to the boy and started issuing a ticket to the bike. Tramley’s reaction was adorable — he ran over, sat down on the motorcycle and looked upset. The image of every adult driver who has been handed a ticket.

The hilarious picture of Tramley sitting on his motorcycle looking depressed, which was posted on the Halifax Regional Police Facebook page, has since gone viral.


“I’m utterly amazed,” Currie told Today. “First, the reaction of Declan. It’s cute and funny. It’s not a normal policing picture. It’s refreshing to see this.”

Currie, who has been part of the community response team for seven and half years, explained that as a team they are always looking for different stories to show the nice side of policing. “It’s nice to show the other side of the police, we’re not always the ones making arrests and hauling people away.”

“He loves his ticket now. He tried to go to bed with his ticket,” his mother Lisa told CTV News.
