(Washington, DC) In the first month of the District Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Ticket Amnesty Program, customers have paid 17,950 outstanding tickets and the agency has collected a total of $976, 341 in revenue.*

The Ticket Amnesty Program began on August 1. Under the program, all penalties on outstanding tickets issued prior to January 1, 2010 are waived. Among the local jurisdictions, drivers in Maryland have paid the most tickets, 8,746, resulting in $475,360 in revenue for the District. Drivers in the District have paid 5,009 tickets, resulting in $282,021 in revenue. And drivers in Virginia have paid 3,027 tickets, resulting in $155,438 in revenue.

"We encourage all citizens to take advantage of this program and satisfy their old debts to DMV," said Lucinda Babers, Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles. "The fastest and most efficient way to pay amnesty tickets is online."
