Amnesty extended for drivers with overdue tickets in Washington

A service allowing drivers in Washington to determine how much they owe in late tickets is being extended.

The Internet-based form was initially supposed to expire Monday, but will continue through Sept. 9.

Washington officials say they've collected nearly $400,000 in revenue in the first two weeks of the ticket amnesty program. They say 7,400 tickets have been paid.

Under the program, drivers who received tickets for motor vehicle violations before Jan. 1, 2010 can pay their tickets without having to worry about late fees.

The program runs through Jan. 27, 2012. Drivers with overdue tickets can pay online, by phone at 866-893-5023 or in person at 301 C Street NW, Room 1157, Monday through Friday from 8:15 am until 4:00 pm.
