LAGRANGE, Ga. - No more tickets for drivers caught with broken equipment on their cars or trucks in one Georgia city.
That's because the LaGrange Police Department is taking a different approach.
Instead of giving first-time violators a fine for defective equipment, officers will give them a coupon with a way to fix their problem.
The city's police chief saw another department's success when its officers passed out similar coupons -- so he decided to try it in LaGrange.
Police said the program will be in place for at least two years.
