I don't even have words for how ridiculous this sounds. I mean your post btw, not the premise. I live in a small city, with two million+ cities within 90 minutes of me. This concept - rewards for good driving - has happened here. I know of gift cards, Tim Hortons cards, etc. They even have an annual campaign where (shortly before the local fair and parade) they cruise the highway beside town for a car with out of province plates, pull them over, and offer them an all expense paid stay in town, passes to the fair, food, and a ride in the parade. It's an effort to show the hospitality of the community. Same principle - pulled over for no crime and instead they were rewarded. You know...a LOT of people like this. Did that occur to you?
Did it ever occur to you that some people - yes, even the big bad police - enjoy giving, and that the vast majority of people have positive relationships with the police?
