Build a business case: developing custom apps

A two-year-old lad has been cautioned by a police officer in Leyland, Lancashire for driving his 2.5mph toy car on the pavement without tax or MOT, the Mirror reports.

Oliver Smith was out with his grandad Derek when the authorites moved in. Oliver's father Richard said: "My dad thought it a was joke at first - he was expecting Jeremy Beadle to turn up. The officer said the buggy could damage a parked car. He gave a warning and drove off."

Richard added: "I think it's utterly ridiculous. It's the funniest thing I have heard in my life because you can actually walk faster than these things. This one has a top speed of 2.5mph.

"All the shops selling them should have signs to say you need driving documents to use them in a public place. Because of their size, you can't just use them in a garden."

The Lancashire Police admitted: ""We cannot comment on the individual case but a child's toy car that can only travel 2-3mph does not come under motor vehicle legislation. Having said that, we would always advise children not to play near to the highway." ®
