From the Orange County Clerk of Courts
During Operation Green Light, nearly 2,000 citizens lined up to take advantage of savings to pay outstanding traffic tickets and criminal fines to restore their driving privileges.
During the event, October 14-18, the Orange County Clerk’s office served more than 1,800 customers, which helped 97 people reinstate their suspended driver’s license with the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles during that week. The Clerk’s Office also cleared many more driver licenses for reinstatement.
The initiative also helped customers by placing 8,758 cases on a payment plan while a total of 204 cases were paid in full. Nearly $2,000 collected was in the form of restitution that will now get paid to victims of crimes.
“We knew that people would want to take advantage of this opportunity. Operation Green Light’s success can be measured by the number of citizens who will now be driving legally again,” said Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell. “I want to thank everyone on my team who worked extremely hard and made this event such a tremendous success.”
During Operation Green Light, Orange County customers with outstanding traffic tickets and criminal fines had the opportunity to pay overdue court obligations while saving the 25 percent collections agency surcharge.
Citizens don’t have to wait for a special event to get assistance with overdue cases. Every day the Orange County Clerk of Courts can assist drivers with payment plans, payment contracts or payment extensions.
