Police in the California town of Rancho Cordova have been rewarding good drivers by pulling them over and issuing $5 gift cards to Starbucks. According to a police department spokesperson, the program was implemented to promote the “holiday spirit” and foster goodwill between motorists and the traffic cops. Relieved (and revived) drivers have local merchants to thank, who donated the cash for the coffee cards. So if you’re rollin through Rancho Cordova and hear them holler “Stop!”, it still ain’t frosty… but hopefully you’ll get a Frapp instead of crap!
