Have traffic tickets that need to be paid?

Tuesday, February 19, 2013 - 7:22pm

If you have a traffic ticket in El Paso, this is your chance to pay up without fear of being arrested.

The city has declared an amnesty period for people with outstanding parking tickets.

During this period, all individuals who owe money for tickets will have the total delinquency fees and collection fees eliminated, leaving only the fine amount to be paid for each citation.

Amnesty will begin next Monday, February 25 until Saturday, March 9.
