Opinion: County foregoes ticket amnesty

Cheers to Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille and Washington counties for “tossing a line” to many financially strapped residents through Ticket Amnesty Day.
Over a thousand people participated in the one-day event, which allowed residents the opportunity to pay a reduced fee on outstanding fines, fines that keep working Vermonters from getting their driver’s licenses, forcing many to drive illegally and without insurance.
Addison County chose not to participate in Ticket Amnesty Day. Hopefully in the near future Addison County will offer the same hand up and give residents the opportunity to take care of unpaid fines, move forward and get back on the road again, legally.
