The San Luis Obispo Police Department is rolling out a new program that uses social media to help some people who get pulled over avoid costly tickets.
Police say pedestrians and bicyclists who get pulled over for various violations are now eligible for a written warning, but, to avoid a fee, they must post about the violation on social media.
Police say the program is "great education" and call it a "win-win."
