LONG BEACH - The City of Long Beach is rolling out a new parking-ticket amnesty program that would allow drivers to avoid paying penalties.

Under the program, if a parking ticket is paid in full during the month of March, all late fees and penalties will be waived. More than 2,200 amnesty notices will be mailed out.

City Manager Charles Theofan says the city is doing this because there is a backlog of overdue tickets in the court system.

Motorists believe it is a good idea, especially during these tough economic times.

"I think it's very good," says Peter Massucci, of Long Beach. "This way, people catch up."

The amnesty programs runs from March 1 - March 31. Drivers will be able to make a payment either online or by mail.
