The Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller's Office is offering help for drivers whose licenses are suspended because of outstanding court fines and unpaid traffic tickets.
Operation Green Light is underway through Friday, during which collection agency fees are being waived.
The event is virtual-only this year because of COVID-19.
Florida law requires that the Clerk's Office turns over unpaid tickets and other outstanding fines and fees to an outside collection agency if someone does not pay their debt within 90 days of the due date. The collection agency can then add on fees that can be as much as 40 percent. If you don’t pay, your driver’s license is also suspended. But during ‘Operation Green Light,’ if you pay your court obligation in full, in most cases you can reinstate your suspended driver’s license.
Last year, nearly 1,400 drivers were cleared to reinstate their licenses during Palm Beach County’s ‘Operation Green Light’ event.
