Slow down, kids!

A 9-month-old boy got his first speeding ticket Sunday while driving his toy car in Middle Village, his parents said.

Benjamin had hopped in the front seat of his new toy for the first time around 9 a.m. when his parents spotted a police car parked in front of a 7-Eleven on Metropolitan Avenue, near 79th Place. 

They asked one of the officers in the car to pose for a photo with their son, and when he got out of the car he had his ticket book handy.

“The officer put his hat on and he kept saying: 'this is definitely a summons,'” said Jessica Boiardi, 33, Benjamin’s mother. “It was so funny.”

The boy was unfazed by the "incident," his mother said.

“He kept his hands on the steering wheel and was just staring at the officer," she said.

Boiardi took a picture of them and later tweeted it out, as first reported by CBS New York.

"Big thanks to officer Gomez for being so sweet," she wrote.

The 104th Precinct, where the officer is assigned to, later retweeted her post.  

"We hope that's the only picture we ever have of our son with the police officer," Boiardi joked.
