This week, St. Mary's police department in northern Pennsylvania stopped handing out tickets for minor traffic violations. And instead, they're handing out flyers asking people to donate CHRISTMAS GIFTS to underprivileged kids.
The flyers say, quote, "In the spirit of the holidays, we are waiving the issuance of a citation in hopes that you will drop off an unwrapped toy to our Police Department." Meaning it's voluntary, and all the presents are going to a charity called Project Gifts.
