Warren court systems taking control of parking ticket issues

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Drivers with parking tickets will face hefty fines if they don't pay on time starting this summer.

A new computer system for the municipal court should be installed by the beginning of next season.

Parking violators who pay within five days of receiving their tickets will only have to pay $10.

However, if they wait longer, those fines will increase in steps.

And the consequences, don't stop there.

"We will issue what are called deter blocks on the license, which would mean that they would not be able to renew their licenses or registration of any motor vehicle in Ohio," says Judge Thomas Gysegem of Warren Municipal Court.

So far, the city has not had any discussions to consider its own amnesty program.
