Miami-Dade drivers facing fines for shirking road tolls can now go to court to get a break on the amount of money they owe, official announced Tuesday.
The program, dubbed “Operation Toll Relief,” is aimed at helping out drivers who may have had their license or auto insurance suspended because of unpaid toll violations.
Under the initiative, Miami-Dade motorists must file a motion asking a traffic-court judge to have the amount owed to be “significantly reduced” and a payment plan instituted. Motorists must file the motions by Sept. 25; the blank forms can be downloaded through the Clerk of Courts’ website at www.miami-dadeclerk.com.
The program is a partnership between the courts, the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority and the Florida Department of Transportation. Information on the program is also available on a recorded message at 305-548-5620.
