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.
