AURORA, Colo. -- A photo a suburban Denver police officer took during a traffic stop is drawing comments of disbelief on Facebook, where the Colorado Department of Transportation posted it.

Aurora police Lt. Chuck DeShazer tells KMGH-TV in Denver the photo wasn't staged. It shows a toddler in a vehicle not wearing a seat belt, sitting beside a car seat with a gasoline can strapped in it. Colorado law requires children under age 8 to be in child safety seats in cars.

DeShazer says an Aurora officer took the photo last week after stopping the vehicle for making an improper turn. The officer found that the toddler, a 14-year-old passenger, and the driver weren't wearing seat belts.

Police say the driver was ticketed. The driver's name wasn't released.
