Bar rewards patrons for leaving their cars in its parking lot overnight

ROCK FALLS, Illinois (WQAD) – Instead of giving out tickets to cars left behind in a parking lot, a local bar and grill is rewarding people instead.

Long Shot Bar & Grill in Rock Falls started leaving notes on customer's cars left in its parking lot overnight. A coupon for a free burger or flat bread is also included in the note.

Raven Willett received the note when she had a night out at Long Shot a few weeks ago. Willett says she had a few drinks and hitched a ride home with her brother. She left her car in the bar's parking lot overnight and when she went to pick it up in the morning, she returned to a surprise.

"I was for sure I got a ticket and when I picked it up and read it, I was surprised that it said we wanted to say thank you and surprised they even do this, said Willett.

The note and free food coupon, left by bar staff, is in an effort to reward customers for being responsible and not drinking and driving.
