Lafayette Council Delays Traffic Amnesty Program


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A proposal to offer amnesty on late penalties for nearly 29,000 delinquent parking tickets and traffic camera fines has been delayed.

The Advocate reports the Lafayette City-Parish Council on Tuesday voted 6-3 to defer a vote on the program until next month.

The proposed plan is to offer the amnesty for a limited time before city-parish government launches a stricter collection program that calls for lawsuits against drivers with delinquent fines totaling $125 or more.

The council put off the amnesty vote pending a move to have the legal costs for collections shared by the private company that oversees the city's traffic camera enforcement program, Redflex Traffic Systems.
