Motorists with city parking tickets in November can buy a child a toy instead of paying fines.

Motorists with city parking tickets in November can buy a child a toy instead of paying fines.

The city’s sixth annual Toys for Tickets program allows toy donations to the Red Deer Christmas Bureau in lieu of fines.

Toys must be new and unwrapped in their original packaging.

Early payment rates remain in effect, although the value of the toy must equal or exceed the amount owed. A receipt must be presented when payment is made and if valued less than the ticket, the difference must be paid.

Last year, 385 people donated nearly 500 toys, bringing the total to more than 3,000 toys donated over the program’s five years.

Toys will be accepted Dec. 6 and 7 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on City Hall’s first floor.

More information is available online www.reddeer.ca/inspections or by calling Parking Administration at 403-342-8185.
