Amnesty for Jay-walkers and Traffic Scofflaws

Original broadcast can be heard on Which Way, L.A.?

Hosted by Warren Olney

It’s easy to get a ticket for jay-walking, running a stop sign or other minor traffic violations — but, for many people, it’s hard to pay the fine after they’ve been convicted. When they can’t pay, the fines go up — and sometimes judges suspend their driver’s licenses. Tomorrow, a year-and-a-half amnesty goes into effect. We hear details from Theresa Zhen is an attorney with the New Way of Life ReEntry Project.
