New voucher program in Iowa City encourages drivers to fix broken headlights

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- There's a new effort in Iowa City to encourage drivers to fix their burned out headlights or taillights.

Beginning this week, if an officer pulls you over in Iowa City for a bad light, he or she may just give you a voucher to get the light replaced. The vouchers aren't openly available to the public and officers can only give them out at their discretion.

The program is a community policing project so it's being paid for using forfeiture funds.
