Got overdue parking tickets from Hamtramck? March is a good time to pay them, thanks to the city's amnesty program.

Throughout the month of March, the 31st District Court is offering an amnesty program for delinquent tickets. All payable parking and traffic civil infraction tickets issued within the City of Hamtramck are eligible under the program.

According to the court's website, the program is a way for individuals to settle up, paying only the full amount of the ticket, and saving money on additional court costs and fines.

The 31st District Court already offers online ticket negotiation as an alternative to appearing in person to discuss a traffic ticket with the City Attorney. New this year, it's offering an online application for the Amnesty Program, which allows individuals to not have to appear in the court.

An online application can be found here.
