CA Amnesty For Rising Traffic Fines, Court Fees Brown Called “Hellhole”


California today starts an amnesty program for residents who can’t afford to pay off spiraling traffic fines and court fees that have led to millions of driver’s licenses being suspended, the Christian Science Monitor reports. The program is part of Gov. Jerry Brown’s budget and runs through March 31, 2017. Drivers with lesser infractions would pay either 50 or 80 percent of what they owe, depending on income. Some drivers would be able to apply for installment payments for outstanding tickets. Drunken-driving and reckless-riving violations are not eligible.
