A traffic agent issued a ticket to an attractive female driver for ‘‘Excessive beauty on public roads’’ in an attempt to impress her, and he is currently being investigated for using an official document for unauthorised purpose.
The unusual incident occurred on May 25 in the Uruguayan city of Paysandú.
An unnamed traffic agent allegedly stopped a female motorist, and impressed by her physical looks, he proceeded to write her a ticket for “Imprudence while driving (excessive beauty on public roads)”.
To make his intentions obvious, the public servant also wrote “I love you” in the ‘observations’ section of the ticket.
