California has a limited time amnesty program for old traffic tickets running from January 1, 2012 until June 30, 2012. It requires a lump sum payment and has additional has restrictions that may make it hard for some of our clients to benefit from the program, but I want to make everyone aware of it.

See the county’s court website for more information – the program is in all 58 California counties.

California Superior Courts in all 58 counties are offering a 50 percent off discount on some old unpaid traffic tickets. It’s a limited-time “Amnesty Program” for certain outstanding court debt. More than 6 million cases statewide could qualify.

The program begins January 1, 2012, and ends June 30, 2012.

Only traffic tickets that were due to be paid before January 1, 2009, are eligible. Parking tickets, driving under the influence (DUI), and reckless driving cases are NOT eligible.

To qualify for the 50 percent discount, all of the following conditions must be met:
You have an outstanding traffic case that was due to be paid in full before January 1, 2009
You either failed to appear in court or failed to pay in full
The last date you made a payment was on or before January 1, 2009
You don’t owe restitution to a victim on any case within the county where the traffic case was filed
You have no outstanding misdemeanor or felony warrants within the county where the traffic case was filed.

Other eligibility requirements may vary from county to county.
