The City of Tulsa will offer an opportunity for citizens to take care of unpaid parking tickets, as well as moving violations, during the first couple of weeks of June.
In addition to avoiding late fees, they can also provide proof they’ve taken care of problems like expired tags or failure to have insurance - and possibly have the charges dismissed entirely.
Municipal Court Administrator Cheri Harvell tells KRMG she also wants people to know police will not be waiting for them if they come in to take care of those fines and fees.
“Nobody needs to fear being arrested when they come to this amnesty event,” she said Tuesday. “So just show up, get this taken care of, and don’t worry about being arrested while you’re here.”
Here is more information from the city:
Moving Violation Amnesty Dates, June 3 and June 10, beginning at 8 a.m.
During these designated days, individuals can pay their citations in full with a cashier, avoiding additional late or warrant fees. Those unable to pay their fines in full can request to see a judge and set up a feasible payment plan. It’s important to note that if you have a citation for no/expired driver’s license, no/expired tag, or no/expired insurance, you should bring proof of current, active status insurance to be considered for a low-or-no-cost dismissal.
Individuals can pay in person at Municipal Court, located at 600 Civic Center, 2nd floor, or request to see a judge from 8 -11 a.m. and 1 – 4 p.m. on June 3 or 10.
Parking Violation Amnesty Week, June 5 to June 16, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
During this period, the vehicle owner or driver can visit Tulsa City Hall or Tulsa Municipal Court to pay preset parking fines without incurring late fees. Those unable to pay their fines in full can request a meeting with a judge to discuss setting up a suitable payment plan. To arrange a meeting, individuals must visit Municipal Court at 600 Civic Center and request to see a judge to get added to the docket and establish a payment plan.
