Amnesty Program For Suspended Drivers

Associated Press - November 24, 2015 5:48 am

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita Municipal Court is offering an amnesty program next month for drivers whose licenses have been suspended for failing to pay or go to court for a traffic citation.

The program will run from Dec. 4 to Dec. 30, during which fees and traffic-related warrants will be waived. Applicants who can’t afford to pay the fines and court costs can receive credit toward their fines by performing community service with local organizations or attend training offered by Workforce Alliance.

State Sen. Michael O’Donnell, a Wichita Republican, says the pilot program is being watched closely at the state level. If it’s successful, he says legislation will be intruduced in the next session allowing for the waiver of city and state fees.
