    Got some of these stuffed in the glove compartment? Time is running out to pay them without additional penalties.

    A program allowing drivers in the District of Columbia to pay outstanding tickets without any penalties ends Friday.
    The D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles' ticket amnesty program wraps up almost six months after it began. The program is offered to anyone who received a parking or driving ticket in the District prior to Jan. 1, 2010.
    DMV administrator Lucinda Babers said people rushed to take advantage of the program. By Jan. 12, drivers had paid $3.1 million worth of tickets, Babers said.

    Tickets can be paid online, by phone or in person at DMV Adjudication Services on C Street in northwest.

    The last time D.C. offered a ticket amnesty program was in 2001.
