Hiding a handful of tickets in the glove compartment? This may be your chance to come clean.

D.C.'s DMV has announced a long amnesty program for outstanding ticket holders. From Aug. 1, all the way until Jan. 27, 2012, drivers still hanging on to tickets issued before Jan. 1, 2010, can pay them fines without having to pay the additional late fine.

Tickets accumulate fines if they are not paid 30 days from when they are issued.  The city hopes to collect $6.3 million.

The DMV says although drivers get a second chance to pay their tickets without additional fines during the period, it's too late to contest them.

Maryland residents owe the most, News4's Chris Gordon reported.

You can pay at the DMV's site here, by phone at 866-893-5023 or in person at 301 C St. NW, but the DMV warned of long lines, Gordon reported.
