CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - If you have some unpaid parking tickets, the city is offering you a break. The city of Chicago is waiving all interest and fees on old tickets.
For a limited time only, Chicagoans will have a chance to pay their old parking and red light tickets at the original fine amount.
The ticket amnesty program began Sunday and will last for six weeks. During that time, the city will waive all taxes, administrative fines, penalties, interest and collection costs accrued on tickets issued before 2012.
Those wanting to take advantage of the program can pay in person at any city finance payment center, at E-Z pay kiosks, online, or by mail.
The last time the city implemented an amnesty program was in 2009, when Richard M. Daley was still in office. Click here to learn more about the program.
