Fortunately the "young offender" was a nosy toddler who had trundled up to Police Officers in her pink plastic car to see what was going on.
The Officers had been trying to seize a genuinely uninsured vehicle at the time in Runcorn, Cheshire.
Playing along, the Officers pretended to take a Breath Test from the girl, after asking her parents if she had been drinking that morning.
"She's had a couple of bottles," they quipped.
A Cheshire Police spokesman said: "Thankfully, the tot's Breath-Test Reading was clear and she was free to go."
