Courts to Cut Break to Those with Unpaid TicketsOctober 28th, 2008 by josh farley
The month of November will offer those with unpaid traffic tickets and other court fines a chance to pay them off a little more cheaply.
Local municipal and district courts are offering an “amnesty” in November, in which they’ll waive interest fees on top of the tickets and fines, said Port Orchard Municipal Court Administrator Deborah M. Hunt in a press release.
As an added bonus, any ticket paid in full by the end of November will be removed from a person’s credit report, Hunt said.
But wait, there’s more: traffic tickets paid in full will trigger court employees to send a letter to the Department of Licensing telling the state to clear the driver’s record.
Those with unpaid fines and/or tickets can call AllianceOne, the collection agency, at (800) 456-8838, Hunt said.
The municipal courts offering the so-called amnesty are in Port Orchard, Bremerton, Poulsbo, Bainbridge Island and Gig Harbor. Kitsap County District Court is participating too.
