Texas police issue toy citations to drivers

Officers in Texas have come up with a unique way to get drivers into the giving mood

GODLEY, Texas — Officers in Texas have come up with a unique way to get drivers into the giving mood during the holiday season.

As a part of the Godley Police Department’s annual “Tix for Tots” drive, officers will give stopped drivers a warning and a blue piece of paper, according to the department’s Facebook

The paper asks drivers to voluntarily donate a new, unwrapped toy for the drive. 

“We as a department understand the hardship some in our community endure, and the holiday season just compounds on those worries, and burdens,” the department wrote. “This program is a way for you and us to give back.”

The department said they welcome the toy donations even if drivers did not receive a warning.

Instead of issuing citations for minor violations, the Godley Police Department hands out warnings along with a request to donate to the local toy drive.
