WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita man who decorated his extended-cab pickup truck with nearly 900 Christmas lights has drawn plenty of attention, including the unwelcomed kind.
KAKE-TV reports David Hill hit the streets two weeks ago, hoping to spread holiday cheer.
But he also drew the notice of police, who stopped the truck and handed Hill a $274 citation as a safety hazard.
Wichita police Lt. Joe Schroeder says it's a safety issue. Schroeder says drivers distracted by the glowing pickup could get involved in accidents.
The lights are strung on roughly 1,000 feet of wiring and run by a generator in the truck's bed.
Hill's not too discouraged. He's hoping word of his traffic ticket will call attention to a group he's involved with called OneSpark, which helps people in need.
