Drivers in Chicago who need to pay off an unpaid ticket can now do so without any added penalties.
The city’s amnesty program began Sunday and allows people to pay parking tickets, red light tickets, and other fines including building code violations without any additional fees.
Tickets issued prior to Jan. 1st, 2012 are eligible for the program. Payments can be made online or in-person at several city payment centers.
In 2002, 2005, and 2008, a similar program generated between $7 million to $9 million dollars each year for the city, according to The Chicago Tribune.
The last day of the ticket amnesty program is Dec. 31st.
