Perhaps I missed something.
It sounds like the officers were going to have the car towed and allowed the occupants to call a family member for a ride. I'm sure she called her mom expecting her to solve the problem. My wife got a speeding ticket from a state trooper a few years ago and asked what she should do with it.

"Were you speeding?"
"Pay the ticket."

The officers did a great job staying professional. I'm especially impressed they did laugh when she showed them her "badge".
