Motorists caught speeding to grandma’s house in Melbourne were greeted with a bittersweet Christmas Day surprise as officers doled out warnings and tickets alongside scratch-off lottery games.

The unique move was an added touch Melbourne police officers wanted to put on the normally quiet holiday traffic.

By 1 p.m. Christmas Day, more than 30 scratch-off game tickets were handed out to speeders and other traffic violators in a bid to spread holiday cheer while keeping the roads safe, police say.

“We’re just doing a little bit of a different technique,” said Sgt. Jamie Rocque.

Rewarding bad behavior.
You were endangering the lives of everyone who sees you tonight, but here, have a chance to win 35,000 dollars courtesy of the taxpayers. I'll be here all night if you want to try for the megamillions jackpot.

Unless you're going at least 20 mph over the posted limit you usually do not have any significant increase in accidents. If people understood this they might understand why speeding tickets are bullshit.
