Denver Police Giving Gift Cards For Broken Tail Lights
July 27, 2021—Denver police are giving drivers with broken tail lights or headlights gift cards instead of tickets instead of tickets.
According to a report from KDVR Channel 2, the police department has partnered with Advance Auto Parts to give motorists with "minor vehicle safety issues" a $25 gift card to encourage motorists to address those issues.
"Working together is how we create stronger communities, and stronger communities are safer communities,” Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen said during a news conference announcing the program.
The department did not say how long the program would last, but Advance Auto Parts only gave the department 100 gift cards to start.
