The Johnston Police Department is spreading holiday cheer to motorists for the fourth year through the Holiday Lights Program. The department has teamed up with Hilltop Tire Service and Orlando’s Automotive in Johnston to allow officers the option of providing motorists a voucher (up to $10) to get their taillight fixed.
“The holiday season can be stressful and sometimes financially challenging,” said Sergeant Zach Grandon. “However, our annual program helps to ease the burden just a bit. If a motorist is pulled over for a taillight that is out, they could receive a voucher instead of a warning or citation. This annual program helps make motorists’ vehicles safer during this time of year.”
Recipients can bring the voucher to one of the participating stores and get replacement bulbs installed.
The following businesses are participating in the Holiday Lights Program:
- Hilltop Tire Service, 8277 Birchwood Court
- Orlando’s Automotive, L.L.C., 4845 NW 59th Avenue, Suite B
Hilltop and Orlando’s would like to remind drivers to get their vehicles road-ready for the winter driving season, including those tires and check lights frequently with the winter months ahead. Drivers can check their headlights when they pull up behind another vehicle or test their taillights when backing into a parking space with a wall behind them. This program is a win-win for everyone, and the officers can’t wait to spread a little holiday cheer!
The program will run through Monday, January 30, 2023.
