The amnesty allows persons with outstanding traffic tickets issued between September 1, 2010 and October 31, 2017, to pay them without repercussions up to January 13, 2018.

The previous amnesty period, which ran from August 2 to October 31, resulted in the collection of more than $590-million from the processing of more than 260,000 tickets.

Ms. Haughton is encouraging members of the public not to wait until the last minute to make use of the latest amnesty.
