Parking scofflaws in Washington may get a chance to pay up without penalty.

The Department of Motor Vehicles is considering an amnesty program for drivers with parking tickets. The plan would allow for payment of the original ticket without any penalties or fees.

Officials told the Washington Examiner it could bring in $6 million.

Right now, there is more than $300 million in unpaid parking tickets. Any money the amnesty brings in would go toward the city's budget deficit.

The amnesty plan was approved for implementation last October but must be reconsidered by the new city administration.

D.C. Council Chair Kwame Brown said he hopes the DMV will go ahead with the plan.
