Wipe away those parking ticket penalties

Got some old, unpaid parking tickets? Friday is your last chance to get rid of them courtesy of D.C.’s ticket amnesty program. (Amanda Voisard - THE WASHINGTON POST)
Attention, parking ticket slackers (and you know who you are): The District is in a forgiving mood — but only until Friday.

If you have any outstanding parking tickets, photo-enforcement tickets or moving violations dating from before Jan. 1, 2010, this is your chance to step up and pay up and all those pesky penalty fines will be waived.
(See Dr. Gridlock’s blog for more about the program.)

Added bonus: If paying those tickets would have cost you points on your driver’s license, those will be forgiven too.

You can get rid of those fees the old-fashioned way and pay in person, or you can pay over the phone or online. But what we really want to know is if you did it? Take our poll.
