Rochester Should Totally Adopt This Parking Ticket Program
Las Vegas is in the news. While that sentence may not surprise many, the reason behind the headline might. The city has adopted a super cool parking ticket program. If you get a parking ticket in Vegas, you can pay it off with school supplies donations! This could possibly be the first and only time I say, what happens in Vegas should NOT stay in Vegas.
Rochester is a pretty charitable city. I can totally see us doing something like this. I mean, let's be real, the number of parking tickets handed out in this city! I work downtown, and I can admit that I've been ticketed a few times. It may have made me slightly less bitter to donate $20 in school supplies, rather than pay for a ticket. That, or canned goods, maybe coats? There's so much we could do with something like this.
It wasn't long ago that we talked about a cool program that they are doing here in Rochester - the "Lights On" Program. Under the program, instead of ticketing drivers for a burned-out headlight, taillight, brake light or turn signal, they gave them a voucher to have it repaired free of charge.
Do you think Rochester should try a parking ticket program?
