Traffic Ticket Amnesty Program

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. In the first three months, the Superior Court in Fresno County had collected about $92,000, the Tulare Court about $266,000, the Kings Court about $64,000, the Madera Court about $17,000, and the Stanislaus Court generated approximately $194,000 in revenue. Nevada county courthouse Executive Director Sean Metroka says there are a few stipulations.

State finance officials estimate that millions of dollars could be collected. A final report to the legislature on the amnesty program is due this fall.

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.
