DETROIT (WWJ) - Detroit Municipal Parking Department (MPD) officials are implementing a parking incentive program to give scofflaws an opportunity to fully resolve all outstanding parking ticket debt prior to the anticipated changes that will take place on July 1, 2011.
The amnesty program, which is coined “All or Nothing Amnesty,” will reduce all fines, penalties and fees by fifty percent.
In order to participate in this program, individuals must pay their entire record and cannot exclude any tickets from the program. If anyone would like to request hearings on any tickets, they will not qualify for the program; hence the term “All or Nothing.”
The amnesty does not apply to vehicles that have been booted. The City has not offered this type of amnesty since 2003 and does not have plans to duplicate this offer.
Beginning July 1, MPD will take more aggressive measures in its enforcement efforts, including extending enforcement hours until 10 pm Tuesday through Saturday. It will also enforce all violations, including parking meters.
The “All or Nothing” Amnesty Program will run from Tuesday, June 21, through Friday, July 1. The hours of operation for the program are 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Thursday and 7 am to 7 pm on Fridays at 1001 Tenth Street and 4700 W. Fort Street.
Lines are expected to be long so, citizens are encouraged to come during the early days of the program. For more information, please call 313-963-9630.
