This was reported on yesterday’s Whiterooradio MTTS update but I thought it was worth a second mention:

Picture it: a young MINI owner is enjoying MTTS while driving in downtown Dallas. In an effort to get to the MTTS party the he makes a completely safe (however slightly illegal) u-turn in the middle of the street. As fate would have it (cue dramatic music) one of the Dallas po-po happen to see the nifty move and decide to throw the book at our young friend by giving him a $200 ticket. (mental note: u-turns in Dallas aren’t a great idea.)

But here’s where MINI saves the day. Head of MINI USA Jim Mcdowell heard of the unfortunate incident and decided to right the wrong of Dallas’ finest by giving the ticketed MINI owner a $200 MINI MotoringGear gift certificate.
