WASHO DISTRICT, Nevada – Some drivers in Nevada are getting rid of traffic.
The Washo County Sheriff’s Office gives people vacations under certain circumstances.
The driver must be an authority and have a heart in the driver’s license to prove it.
The amnesty applies only to minor traffic violations.
The sheriff’s office said it was trying to raise awareness of the need for organ donation.
“If we can have a positive engagement with the community, that’s great,” said Sheriff Jeff Clark.
According to the Network for Organ Procurement and Transplantation, 17 people die every day while waiting for an organ transplant.
In Nevada, 600 people are now waiting for the body.
The sheriff is announcing this amnesty for the third time.
