While we raise our children to respect authority figures and insist they adhere to the rules put in place by those in power, it's fair to say our warning sometimes fall on deaf ears as the parents of one feisty tot in the States recently learned.

Cruising in her pink convertible, eight-month-old Reigen threw caution to the wind in a move which unfortunately caught the attention of passing Police Officer Walter Nejman who was patrolling Philadelphia's 8th district.

In an effort to raise awareness of Reigen's traffic violation online, Philadelphia Police Department took to social media to use the tot's case as a warning to the public, writing: "Yeah, yeah, ma'am. Tell it to the judge!" 

"Yeah, yeah, ma'am. Tell it to the judge!"Pictured here is Officer Walter Nejman from the 8th district putting in work...

Uploading a shot of the exchange which took place between hardworking Officer Nejman and hell-raiser Reigen, the department continued: "Pictured here is Officer Walter Nejman from the 8th district putting in work while keeping our roads safe."

"Apparently, this motorist thought that a posted Stop Sign was only a suggestion, and a "slide" would suffice. Uh, no!," they continued. "Also, "not being able to read" really isn't an excuse - but nice try! Fortunately, P/O Nejman let her off with a warning."

Insisting that Reigen wouldn't get off so easily next time, the department hammered home the importance of adhering to road safety rules, concluding their comical post: "Thanks to mom, Olivia, for the picture [evidence]. If it happens again, we'll see you guys in court!"

The adorable post, which has been shared and liked thousands of times since its upload in recent days, has also been inundated with messages from the public, with one social media user writing: "Looks like she has an open container on that car!!"

Addressing the claim, the Philadelphia Police Department responded: "Yeah, we noticed that. Not surprisingly, she declared "that isn't mine!". Perhaps for the first time in history, the driver was telling the truth!"

How adorable!
