Clear Path Relief Pilot Program

The Clear Path Relief Pilot Program (CPR) is designed to help low-income motorists eliminate old debt by requiring payment of only the original fine amount on tickets issued within the last 3 years. Additionally, any new tickets will have 50% ​of the amount due waived if paid ​in a timely​ manner and will not incur any fees or penalties until after December 31, 2023. Motorists are eligible if they have a household income less than or equal to 300% of the 2022 Federal Poverty Guidelines or are currently enrolled in Utility Billing Relief. Additional details on the benefits, eligibility, and application for CPR can be found here. Fix-It Defense All motorists can now use a Fix-It Defense if they receive an expired city sticker or expired license plate violation and come into compliance.

  • Open to all motorists regardless of income

  • Expired city sticker or expired license plate violations are eligible

  • One Fix-It defense for each type of violation per life of the license plate

  • Contest the violation and provide proof of purchase and display at hearing

  • Tickets issued up to 30 days prior to date of compliance dismissed

  • Come into compliance within 30 days to receive the maximum benefit
