Texas Officer Gives Ticket and $100 to Man Who Can’t Pay Registration

A random act of kindness allows a motorist to pay his registration

A generous traffic control cop from The Plano, Texas will be in the books for actually giving a man money to cover his vehicle registration.

The officer, who remains unidentified, pulled Hayden Carlo over on an expired registration. As he was stopped, Carlo, a father and husband, was asked why he didn't renew the registration. He answered frankly that he couldn't afford it.

He explained to the officer that he had been struggling to pay bills and put food on the table, and his vehicle registration was the last thing on his mind. He never expected for anything more than a ticket.

However, when the officer heard that his earnings went to buying food for his children, he gave the man a free pass.

"You get paid, pay your bills, and there's your money. It's gone. I said 'there's no explanation for why I haven’t done it, except I don’t have the money.' I said 'it was either feed my kids or get my registration done'," the motorist is quoted by the Examiner explaining.

More than feeling sympathetic, the officer only issued a warning ticket, and came back with a $100 bill attached to it.

"He helped me out when I needed it and I appreciate that. I’ll never forget that man. It definitely restored my faith in God," the motorist describes the Christmas miracle.

Hayden Carlo used the money to update his and his wife's registrations, as soon as he got the chance. They use their cars to get to work, so driving was a necessity for them.

With the good Samaritan's help, Carlo will not be pulled over again, which results in the fact that he will not be fined and will not be late arriving at his job.
