Police to pull over teens for good driving

Macomb County rewards good driving with gift cards

DETROIT – Teens driving in Macomb County could be rewarded with gift cards for their good driving habits.

The Macomb County Sheriff's Department are looking for teen drivers this fall, and pulling them over to reward them.

The teens can receive five dollar gift cards to Taco Bell, Subway and McDonalds. About 200 gift cards will be given away.

Police are looking for drivers wearing seat belts, coming to a complete stop, using turn signals and following speed limits.

"The Sheriff's Office is pleased to partner with State Farm in this initiative," said Sheriff Anthony M Wickersham. "Programs like this help to develop positive relationships between our deputies and the young adult community.  We look forward to the positive interaction with our new drivers."
