Las Vegas Is Allowing People To Pay Parking Violations With School Supplies
If you live in Las Vegas and have a parking ticket to settle, you can pay in a different way for a limited time. The Las Vegas City Council has approved a program that will allow parking tickets to be paid with donations of school supplies. The supplies must be donated to the nonprofit organization, Teachers Exchange.
Between now and July 19 residents may square up their ticket by bringing new, unwrapped school supplies of equal or greater value to their fine. Items being accepted are pencils, pens, erasers, dry erase markers, index cards, paper towels, disinfecting wipes, card stock, copy paper, storage bins, rulers, scissors, pencil sharpeners, and post-it notes.
Do you think a program like this should be instated in other cities?
