New Orleans' Ticket Amnesty Program Ends

Flag of New Orleans, Louisiana

A three-month long program allowing people to pay off their late parking and traffic camera tickets, code enforcement violations and even library fees without late penalties is coming to a close.

Norman White, the city's chief financial officer, said residents who participated in the program saved a total of $2.4 million.

Beginning this month, the library is following in the city's lead by having its own amnesty program and no longer charges late fees for youth materials, as long as they are returned.

The city's program ends at 12 a.m. today, but people can still settle their accounts at City Hall until 5 p.m.
