There is a new initiative in the 417 that will allow police officers to hand out vouchers to drivers who need help with minor car repairs instead of giving them a ticket!

The program, created by the Missouri Bar Association, will be community run and will help those stopped for equipment violations. Many driver who are stopped for these violations are unaware or unable to fix these problems due to costs. With the new program, police will have an opportunity to not only prevent adding to this cycle and help those in need!
