Santa Clara County Has Implemented a California Traffic Infraction Amnesty Program

January 30, 2012, by Tamara B. Pow

Cut the cost of your old unpaid traffic tickets in half! If one of your new year's resolutions involves clearing out that old traffic ticket that you either failed to show up in court for, or just didn't pay on time, a new Santa Clara County amnesty program may be right for you. From January 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012 you may be able to get rid of an outstanding traffic case that was due in full before January 1, 2009 by paying 50% of the fine. The case must have been within Santa Clara County, which includes the cities of Santa Clara, San Jose, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Milpitas, Monte Sereno, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Saratoga, Campbell, Los Gatos, Morgan Hill, and Gilroy.
