    Young child drives a tiny car which runs on compressed air. Child drives towards camera. Shot of the child looking at the underneath of the car (which is on its side on the pavement) where the air cylinders are clearly visible. A man comes along and turns the car back over. The child gets back into the car. Drives off and is promptly stopped by a policeman. The policeman looks at the child's driving licence. Child drives off after a friendly push from the policeman. Cute!
