Food For Fines: Canned Goods Get You Out of Traffic Fines in Ohio
If you don’t want to pay a traffic ticket, one town has an alternative that lets you help out the less fortunate this holiday season.
FOX News Radio’s Ron Flatter has the story:
If you’re passing through St. Bernard, Ohio a little too quickly, that speeding ticket may not cost you…at least in cash.
(Resident) “It’s probably a lot cheaper to just donate the canned goods than pay the ticket.”
She’s a resident reacting to the setting aside of fines. Instead of cash, the town near Cincinnati will accept 25 cans of food to pay off a typical traffic ticket. Mayor Bill Burkhartt says it’s a win-win:
(Burkhartt) “It definitely helps the poor and the food kitchens. I think it’s just a great idea all the way around.”
The food-for-fines program starts Monday and runs through December 11th.
