Davenport Trying to Collect Citations
DAVENPORT, IA (AP) - Officials in Davenport are waiving an extra collection fee for drivers who haven't paid citations from traffic cameras.
The city is giving those drivers with outstanding tickets two months to pay their $65 fine without the additional $25 fee. It's added back to the total if a ticket isn't paid within 60 days.
The Quad-City Times reports the city has $3.5 million in unpaid citations. They expect to collect $600,000 during the exemption period.
Officials plan to work with the Iowa Department of Revenue to collect the outstanding debt after Aug. 4. That will allow the state to block license plate renewals for drivers with remaining debt.
The city plans to send letters this week to 27,000 drivers.
