Nobody wants to get a speeding ticket on a holiday, well unless you were in Melbourne,Florida on Christmas.

About thirty people were pulled over on Christmas day in Melbourne and the cops decided to do something different. People getting pulled over would get the normal citation, but would also receive a scratch off lottery ticket. However, don’t just start driving around speeding in Melbourne.

“I can tell you right now that no one is getting lottery tickets today,” Sgt. Sheridan Shelley said. “Hopefully nobody has it in their mind to speed and expect to receive a lotto ticket that was a one-shot deal for Christmas.” No word on whether someone hit a huge amount of money off of one of the tickets. If someone did, I would hope they would hook up the cops with some money.
