Cops Stop, Give Rewards?

Orin Kerr wonders if the following is constitutional:
"A number of towns have started experimenting recently with “good driver” traffic stop programs as a way to encourage safe driving (and perhaps improve police/community relations). The basic idea is that during a particular week or other period, police officers pull over a few good drivers who are obeying all traffic laws, commend their driving, and offer them gifts such as gift certificates or tickets to local sporting events. . . ."

I just wondering. . . . . Are you kidding me? Who would ever think of such a thing for government to do?
