Police Reward Good Drivers With Candy 7

Posted by samzenpus

New Zealand Police working in Waitarere Beach are trying a new tactic in the war against bad driving. They are rewarding good drivers with candy. "This year we decided rather than going out with a big stick and punishing people being bad, we would also reward people for good behavior," Constable Ian Hamblyn said. If the program is a success, New Zealanders who manage not to steal will be rewarded with a peanut butter cup.

    Is there a down-under racist joke that I’m just not getting here?

    • Thanks to the AC who cleared that up.

      And whoever modded me troll... go find a bridge to crawl under. It was a down-under racist joke, just as I suspected. How does asking that make me a troll?

      • Actually, that AC comment looks suspiciously like a joke.

        I’m still trying to figure out why good drivers would get a peanut butter cup. It’s obviously a joke, but I don’t really see why it’s funny, unless it means something other than the obvious.
