Parking ticket discount program may be axed

New York City expects to collect $575 million in 2011 from parking ticket fines. You don’t like it, you can fight. You can come here to a parking violations office and see a judge, or you can “settle” and get discount.

Fox 5 News showed how, within a few minutes, a man with a $65 ticket paid only $43 through the settlement program.

But the days of getting breaks are numbered. Sources tell Fox 5 News that the settlement program is about to end.

Parking violation judges say that their bosses, senior judges, told them that the discount program will be eliminated sometime in mid-April. And they also say they were warned not to tell the public. [my FOX NY]
