Nassau County has extended its parking ticket amnesty program until Sept. 15.
During the amnesty program period, motorists can make payments on outstanding parking tickets without added penalties. Any parking ticket issued on or after Jan. 1, 2010 is eligible for conference where a defendant can appear in court to discuss the possibility of a negotiated settlement.
Once the amnesty program end on Sept. 15, the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (TPVA) is planning to "embark on an aggressive collection and enforcement program that will include boot and tow, default judgments, asset seizures, collection agency efforts and credit reporting."
The Nassau TPVA is located on 16 Cooper St., Hempstead. The agency is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. as well as Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Payments are accepted as cash, certified check, personal check, money order as well as MasterCard and Visa Credit cards.
