To hammer home the point, officers in Stockholm’s Sodermalm district published pictures of the silver minivan at the bottom of a steep hill.

"On Tanto Mount, the handbrake was left off when the couple’s desire for each other got too much. Safety first. On all levels," the police wrote on Twitter.

The department’s officers are known for their humorous social media posts, attracting more than 65,000 followers on Twitter.
