When drivers see the blue and red lights in your rearview mirror, chances are they’re worried they’ll receive a ticket.

Instead of a ticket, however, officers with the Mission Police Department handed out frozen turkeys Friday to drivers they stopped for traffic violations. 

The turkey and trimmings were paid for by Mission police with a donation from the McAllen Emergency Room.

Police say they plan to have another event like this by the end of the year.

Watch the video above for the full story.
