Binghamton Parking Ticket Scoflaws Get 30 Day Aminesty
The city of Binghamton is giving all parking ticket scofflaws a chance to pay up and receive a discount with a month long period of amnesty.
Now through September 30th, 2015, the city of Binghamton will allow the total cost of any ticket issued prior to January 1st, 2015, including any penalties and late fees, to be paid at 75 percent of the outstanding balance due.
The city has sent over 8,500 letters to delinquent ticket-ers notifying them of their outstanding balance.
Once the amnesty period is done, violators with three or more outstanding parking tickets could be getting the booting device placed on their vehicle, preventing them from driving it.
The city is also seeking permission from the New York State DMV to publish the names of the individual offenders, and the amount they owe.
As of August 3rd, 2015 there were 19,422 unpaid parking tickets owed to the city totaling $1,024,065!
That's a big chunk of change, and would help with all the financial challenges the city has faced.
If you, or someone you know has outstanding parking tickets issued in the city of Binghamton, now is the time to pay up.
