Imperial, California - Police in Concord, MA recently went on a ticket writing spree-citing pedestrians and motorists alike.  But, says the Association of Mature American Citizens, it was all in a good cause-to encourage good behavior in a positive fashion.

The cops issued citations for such things as wearing a helmet while cycling, stopping at crosswalks to give pedestrians the right of way and looking both ways before crossing a street.

It was a "truly sweet thing" to do, quipped one observer when he learned that the tickets were redeemable for two scoops of ice cream.
