BLOOMINGTON (25 News Now) - The Bloomington Police Department is unveiling a program that will give vouchers to those pulled over for a burned-out headlight, taillight or turn signal.

The department says the program, called Lights on!, has been partially funded through microgrants via Lights On! with the other half funded by local Country Financial representatives - to the tune of $6,000.

The program allows officers the opportunity to issue a voucher worth up to $250 in parts and labor to a citizen pulled over on a traffic stop who has a broken or non-functioning headlight, taillight, or turn signal.

A person with a voucher would have two weeks to redeem it at either Walmart in Bloomington or Normal, Advanced Auto Parts or Auto Zone.

The police department says no taxpayer dollars are being used to fund this program.
