This week, a police department in northern Pennsylvania stopped handing out tickets for minor traffic violations. Instead, they're handing out flyers asking people to donate Christmas gifts to underprivileged kids.

Obviously it's just for minor violations. If you plan on doing 84 through a school zone with your head hanging out of your sunroof...odds are you'll be spending the night in jail.

And obviously they don't want people trying to get pulled over. So they also said you don't have to get stopped by a cop to help out. You can just drop off a gift without breaking the law first.
