A six-month program began on January 1 for certain traffic bail and fines. This one-time amnesty period offers discounted fines for some old, unpaid traffic tickets that were due and payable before January 1, 2009. Defendants may make a lump sum payment of 50% of the total outstanding balance, including the base fine, assessments, late charges or other fees, of certain violations to fully satisfy the court ordered obligation.

Parking tickets, driving under the influence and reckless driving cases are not eligible for this program. 

Other qualifying conditions include:

– Defendant did not appear in court, or did not pay in full

– Any previous payment was made on or before January 1, 2009

– Restitution is not owed to a victim on any case within the County where the traffic case was filed

– There are no outstanding misdemeanor or felony warrants within the County

 The program concludes on June 30, 2012. For more information on this program, visit the Superior Court website, or call 877.541.8420.
