Cedar Rapids forgives traffic tickets in exchange for blood donations

Posted: Updated:

Traffic ticket forgiveness -- for doing a good deed.

It's an option for some people in Cedar Rapids.

The Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center is teaming up with Parks Cedar Rapids to make it all happen.

Blood drives have been popping up across Eastern Iowa lately, but the downtown Cedar Rapids location is the only one we know of offering this deal.

"We're here today partnering with Parks Cedar Rapids, and if you have a ticket that you got in the past month and it's less than 25 dollars, if you come here and donate, Parks Cedar Rapids will actually forget about that ticket for you," said Tim Nash, a donor relations consultant for MVRBC.

The blood drive hopes this inspires more people to give.
