GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Kent County District Courts are offering a new waiver program next month for anyone with outstanding warrants for parking and traffic tickets and other issues.
The program is for “anyone with outstanding criminal and/or traffic warrants for non-compliance with a court order of fines, fees, court costs and any outstanding traffic and/or parking tickets that have gone into default or suspension.” The courts say that anyone who makes their payments in full between October 1 and October 31 will not be incarcerated.
Also the courts will waive all court-imposed late fees and/or warrant fees except the $45 License Suspension Reinstatement Fees.
“This waiver program allows individuals with certain warrants and/or outstanding tickets an opportunity to start fresh with reasonable cost, while avoiding jail time and/or additional driver’s license sanctions,” said District Court Judge Williams G. Kelly in a press release.
The courts accept cash, money orders and cashier’s checks, but not personal checks. People are also advised to not mail in cash.
