Time is running out to take advantage of the 50 percent reduction on qualifying old unpaid traffic infraction tickets. The program ends June 30, 2012.
Superior courts throughout California report that they’ve already resolved thousands of cases and collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid fees and fines.
The program began January 1, 2012.
“The amnesty program is a golden opportunity for drivers with old unpaid traffic tickets to clear their records at a reduced amount,” said Margie Borjon-Miller, Administrative Office of the Courts. “And it helps the courts, the state, and local governments to generate revenues that would have otherwise gone uncollected.”
Parking tickets, DUIs, and reckless driving citations are not eligible for the discount. Drivers should contact the court in the county where the citation occurred to verify eligibility for the amnesty program.
Note: Friday, June 29th is the last court day of the month. Individuals should check with their local court to learn if their court offers Saturday payment processing.
