Nobody likes arriving at their car only to find a parking ticket tucked under the wipers – but this Canadian town is offering residents a chance to give back with their parking fines instead.

The second annual Scrooge The Ticket program in Innisfil, Ontario is allowing recipients of parking tickets to donate toys, gift cards, or non-perishable food items to the needy instead of paying the fees.

Starting tomorrow on November 30th, the donation option will extend until December 9th, offering a 3-week time period for citizens to opt out of the ticket.

“We really saw our residents get into the spirit with this last year and we are excited to hold our second ‘Scrooge the Ticket’ campaign,” said Innisfil Mayor Gord Wauchope. “No one likes to get a parking ticket, but this is a thoughtful way to have our residents give generously to a great cause leading into the holiday season.”

Any Innisfil drivers who are too scroogey to donate, just remember – Santa’s watching.
