HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — April is parking ticket amnesty month in the Long Island town of Huntington.

As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, there are people out there, even going back to 2005, who have not paid their parking tickets in Huntington.

Town Supervisor Frank Petrone said some might just have forgotten, while others did not want to pay.

But for one month in April, the town will allow those with outstanding tickets to pay 60 percent of the total owed. Most people who have outstanding tickets will receive a notice in the mail, informing them of the amnesty program.

The program should bring in some major revenue for the town – likely over $600,000.

But if you still don’t pay up, there is a warning that your car could be booted.
