Police Swap Toys for Traffic Tickets in Cuyahoga Falls

Over the next two weeks, officers will issue "toy waivers" to some motorists who break minor traffic laws. The waivers will encourage drivers to purchase and donate a toy.

Getting pulled over isn't exactly a favorite pastime of motorists in Cuyahoga Falls; however, folks may luck out as officers spread a little holiday spirit. 

Some drivers caught committing minor traffic violations over the next two weeks will receive a "toy waiver" versus a ticket, said Cuyahoga Falls Police Chief Tom Pozza.

The waivers will encourage drivers to donate a toy to the Toys for Tots program.

According to Pozza, minor violations include those that don't put other motorists at risk, like driving without a front license plate. 

"We're trying to spread a little holiday cheer," said Pozza. "This is our fifth year running the program, and each year has been a success."

Drivers that receive toy waivers are asked to drop their unwrapped gifts off between Dec. 2-15 at the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department, located at 2310 Second St.
