Toys for Tickets collects 216 toys
December 10, 2014 -
This year's Toys for Tickets program has collected 216 toys representing $3,020 in parking fines.
"We can see by the toys piling up under the tree that paying in toys takes the sting out of a parking ticket. We are happy to be able to offer this seasonal opportunity for the benefit of Kingston children," says Brandi Timpson, Supervisor Licensing & Enforcement.
Kingston motorists were allowed to pay their parking fines with toys again this year from December 4 to 9.
The toys, now under the tree at City Hall's Payment Centre, will be distributed to children over the holidays.
