In California, police give money to violators instead of a fine

The California State Police gave local motorists a Christmas present: instead of fines for minor violations, drivers received a postcard with a banknote.

Madera County Police Chief Sheriff Jay Varney emphasized that this kind of good deed has been committed in the state for the fifth year. They help to adjust the communication of citizens and police in a positive way, and gives the latter a festive mood. There is an important educational moment: it is believed that violators will remember for a long time receiving a gift instead of a fine, and their conscience will prevent them from breaking the rules the next time because of inattention.

 Citizens of California met the Christmas gifts from California police enthusiastically, and were especially impressed with tears. In a word, the action turned out to be sincere and, as expected, effective.
