To those parental drivers who urge their kids to engage with the world rather than disappear into TikTok:
Maybe let them stick with TikTok.
A “high-risk enforcement stop” Saturday evening near Stockton was the result of a girl’s back-seat prank, the California Highway Patrol’s South Sacramento office says.
Six CHP units were sent in pursuit of a car southbound on Highway 99 after it was reported that a young passenger was displaying a piece of notebook paper on which was scrawled, “Help me shes not my mom!! Help!!”
The car was first reported at 5:02 p.m. on Highway 99 at Dillard Road, near Elk Grove. Twenty miles later, at Eight Mile Road, the CHP forced the car to the right shoulder.
“It was determined that the juvenile had made it all up and thought it was a fun thing to do. The mother was unaware of what her daughter was doing,” said the CHP office’s Facebook post, which was tagged #notfunny.
The post advised parents “to be aware of what their children are doing in the back seat at all times.”
The mother and daughter were sent on their way with a reprimand.
