Today is the last day to pay your parking ticket with a toy as part of Red Deer’s Toys for Tickets program.

Motorists who received parking tickets between Nov. 1 and Dec. 6 can donate a toy in lieu of paying their ticket.

All toys will be donated to the 2013 Red Deer Christmas Bureau.

Toy donations will be accepted today from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the first floor of City Hall.

All toys must be new, unwrapped and in their original packaging.

The early payment rate will remain in effect when the ticket is paid for with a toy.

However, the value of the toy must equal or exceed the amount owed on the parking ticket.

A receipt for the toy must be presented at the time of payment.

The difference must be paid if the toy’s value is lower than the ticket price.

For more information, contact the city’s Inspections and Licensing Department at 403-342-8185.
