UK cops give candy, not tickets, to speeders

Yesterday, I told you about London's $8,000 traffic tickets. In North Worcestershire, they're going to the other extreme:
As part of a recruitment drive, North Worcestershire, UK police are handing out chocolates and balloons to speeders instead of tickets in the Wyre Forest district. "We hope it will encourage people to think not only about speed and road safety related issues but also about becoming a Special," North Worcestershire Specials Commandant Chris Cookson told the Express and Star. Specials are part-time volunteers who wear a uniform and carry full police powers while doing support work for paid police officers.
Those wacky limeys.
