The relief announced today includes a 90-day grace period on all Traffic and Non-Traffic Infraction matters. The Court will take no action to send such matters to collections if they remain unpaid or assess the permissible Civil Assessments. Defendants do not need to contact the Clerk’s Office to take advantage of this relief.
In addition, Traffic Infraction defendants who have suspended driver’s licenses due to unpaid tickets can now call the Court to set a future hearing date and immediately have the Court request a release of their Driver’s License Hold from the DMV. Defendants should be aware that COVID-19 has affected the DMV’s ability to process these requests, so there may be some delays in having the holds lifted.
