The City of Long Beach announced Wednesday that it will drop late fees and penalties for outstanding parking tickets that are paid in March.
The one-time parking ticket amnesty program runs from March 1 to March 31.
The city said amnesty notices are being mailed to the registered owners of vehicles that are recorded as having outstanding parking violations.
Payments must be made in full to take advantage of the program.
