Mayor Vincent C. Gray has reminded motorists with outstanding tickets to pay up before the city’s ticket-amnesty program ends Jan. 27.
Under the D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) program, drivers may pay older, outstanding parking, moving violations and photo-enforcement tickets issued before Jan. 1, 2010 without extra penalties.
“Time is running out for citizens to pay off many of their old tickets,” Gray said at a news conference Jan. 11. “An opportunity like this doesn’t happen often, so we encourage customers to take the time to satisfy their old ticket debts to the District at a lower cost.”
Tickets may be paid online at www.dmv.dc.gov, over the phone (866-893-5023) or in person at DMV Adjudication Services, located at 301 C Street NW, Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. until 5 p.m.
So far, more than $3 million has been collected through the ticket-amnesty program. Most of the revenue has come from drivers in Maryland, who have paid more than $1.5 million to date.
Motorists may not request hearings on amnesty tickets. However, D.C. residents may take advantage of a payment plan for larger fines. In addition, during the amnesty period no points will be assessed on tickets paid for moving violations.
