NYC Parking Ticket Settlement Program ends on Jan. 31st
The NYC DOF pulls the plug
In a highly anticipated move by the NYC Department of Finance, a date certain has been set to end the popular NYC parking ticket fine settlement program. The DOF posted the following notice on its website:
"The Settlement Program is ending January 31, 2012. If you wish to pay the settlement amount, Finance must receive your payment by January 31, 2012, even if it is less than 30 days from the time you agree to this settlement. The fastest way to pay is on-line."
Key take-aways are:
- The current settlement program ends on January, 31, 2012
- The DOF must receive your settlement payment by January 31, 2012

The Department of Finance anticipates opening a treasure chest of parking ticket gold; but instead, may have unleashed the wrath of the NYC driving community that pays parking ticket fines (no questions asked). Time will tell.
