Lots of people took advantage of the chance to save money when paying for traffic tickets during a one-day special offered by the Office of the Pasco County Clerk & Comptroller.
Under a program called Operation Green Light, people who had overdue Pasco County traffic tickets, as well as court costs and fines could pay those costs in full, restore their driving privileges and receive a 25 percent reduction in the collections surcharge.
During that one-day event, held on April 18, the clerk’s office collected $81,351.
That total included 170 people assisted in person and 132 assisted through call centers. There were 136 customers who were eligible to have their driver’s license reinstated in Pasco County.
