Police officers give away ice cream, not tickets!

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on August 28th, 2014


Imagine this: You’re driving along, minding your own business, when all of a sudden you spot the unmistakable flashing of police lights in your rear view mirror. Yep, you’re being pulled over. But why? You weren’t speeding, you didn’t run a stop sign, and you’re pretty sure your tail lights are working properly. (At least you hope they are.)

Now imagine the police officer walking up to your car, but instead of asking for your driver’s license and handing you a ticket, he hands you an…ice cream cone?

That’s exactly what police officers in Dunedin, New Zealand are doing to reward motorists for their good driving habits. Said one Dunedin police officer, “It’s good to actually reward good driving, as opposed to just talking about the bad driving that’s out there in Dunedin city.”

The unexpected gesture is inspired by a similar effort earlier this year when police officers in California teamed up with a local ice cream maker to give away ice cream to law-abiding citizens. Check out the video below, and imagine your own reaction if you were one of those nervous motorists!
