The mayor and police chief of Toldeo, Ohio have offered to overlook your speeding ticket if you pledge to buy a toy for the Marine Toys for Tots program.
The “Trade a Ticket for a Toy” program will run from Dec. 10 to Dec. 24. Just purchase an unwrapped new toy and drop it off at Family Dollar or Toys “R” Us in exchange for the forgiveness of any “lesser traffic citation,” which would include red light violations and normal speeding tickets.
Finkbeiner said this was one more way for Toledo residents to participate in the “act of charity and act of giving.” The average ticket fine is $130. (More at Toledo Free Press)
