Bowser Extends Ticket Amnesty Program for Drivers Through End of Year


DC Mayor Muriel Bowser said on Monday, September 27 that the city has extended its amnesty program for drivers with unpaid tickets until December 31, 2021.

The ticket amnesty program, which was launched on June 1, was originally scheduled to expire on September 30.

Over 32,000 drivers have taken advantage of the program since it started, which accounts for $44 million worth of tickets, according to the Mayor’s Office.

“As the District continues to recover from the pandemic, we know this is a program that is helping residents – many who have had to make difficult financial decisions – get a fresh start and get back on track,” said Bowser in a press statement. “Whether it’s the Ticket Amnesty Program or STAY DC, we are encouraging all residents in need of financial assistance to apply for these programs today.”

Both DC-based drivers and drivers from outside DC who have overdue tickets issued before December 31, 2021 are eligible for the amnesty program, which gives them the chance to pay their outstanding tickets without any penalties. However, drivers will still have to pay Department of Public Works tow and storage fees.

Eligible tickets are those issued for parking, photo enforcement — which includes speed, red-light, and stop sign — and minor moving violations.

The penalties for delayed payment of tickets will apply again, starting next year.
