D.C. Ticket Amnesty Raised $1 Million Less Than Projected

City officials still expect to hit $6 million goal

    D.C.'s ticket amnesty program that ended last month has collected less money than projected, but city officials believe they will be able to make up the difference.

    As of last week, the Department of Motor Vehicles collected almost $5 million in unpaid traffic tickets and fines under the amnesty program, the Washington Examiner reported.

    When the program kicked off last summer, the department estimated that $6 million in fines would be raised.

    The DMV said some people are using the payment plan, so money is still coming in.

    Even if the projected $6 million comes in, it’s a fraction of the almost $300 million reportedly owed in outstanding tickets.
