DOYLESTOWN, Ohio (WJW)-- Doylestown police were spreading cheer Wednesday afternoon when they pulled several people over for minor traffic violations.
Instead of getting a ticket, the drivers received a friendly warning and cash.
“It’s our $100 traffic stop campaign,” explained Lt. Kevin Milburn. “Instead of issuing traffic citations we are giving out $100 bills to help with the holidays.”
Doylestown Police Chief Casey Tester said the program started about five years ago when a local couple approached police and wanted to donate money to give back to the community. Each year the couple donates $1,000.
The drivers who were stopped Wednesday were extremely grateful.
One driver said he planned to use the money to help someone else this holiday season.
