Florida cops issue scratch-off tickets to speeders on Christmas Day

Motorists caught speeding in Melbourne, Fla., on Christmas Day were also caught off guard as officers issued free lottery scratch-off games alongside warnings and tickets.

“We’re just doing a little bit of a different technique,” Sgt. Jamie Rocque told local newspaper Florida Today. “When we pull the motorists over, we’re also giving them the scratch-off tickets that the officers bought with their own personal funds. It’s something good to do in light of the holidays. We’re getting a lot of surprised looks. … People don’t know what to say.”

By 1 p.m. on Christmas Day, more than 30 scratch-off game tickets reportedly had been handed out to traffic violators in an effort to spread the Christmas spirit while keeping the roads safe.
