WOODBURY - Nassau County leaders are offering drivers with outstanding tickets the opportunity to negotiate a reduced settlement ahead of a summer crackdown.

County officials say thousands of drivers ignore parking tickets and red light camera violations, costing the county millions of dollars in lost revenue.

"The county is in a position where it can use these dollars to offset cuts," says Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano.

Starting in July, police will boot and tow the car of any driver who has three or more unpaid tickets in an 18-month period. Cars parked on private property will not be targeted.

The county is looking to collect more than $16 million just from the drivers with three or more unpaid tickets.
