WARREN -- Drivers with outstanding city parking tickets better pay them off before mid-summer or face having higher fines and the possibility of not being able to renew their drivers licenses.
The municipal court is completing the installation of a new computer system that will allow it to provide third notices to people who have not paid their tickets.
It is after the third notice that vehicle owners owing parking fines may face not being able to renew their drivers licenses without a release from the court.
Parking tickets are $10 if paid within 10 days of receipt. Fines increase by $15 to $25 if paid between the 11th and 40th day. Fines increase to $78 after the 41st day.
However, if there is an administrative hold on licenses, vehicle owners will have to pay $15 to release their licenses.
