The state of California is currently offering a limited time opportunity for drivers who currently find that they are behind on paying for any traffic citations that they have piling up in their glove box. This offer last for the first six months of the 2012 year and will allow for delinquent drivers to pay up on any tickets that they have.
The deal? If they pay the first half of the fine, the second half will be waived. Legislators are currently hoping that this will prove to be a win-win situation for both drivers and the state. On one side, those who currently have fines will be able to settle with the courts for half of what they owe – clearing their name and getting the fines taken care of. On the other hand, the state will hopefully see an influx of much needed income.
If you currently have fines piling up from tickets – no matter whether it was speeding, a parking violation or if were criminally charged with drunk driving – this could be an effective solution to helping make the payments more affordable.
