WASHINGTON (AP) — A service allowing drivers in the District of Columbia to determine how much they owe in late tickets is being extended.


The Internet-based form was initially supposed to expire Monday, but will continue through Sept. 9.


D.C. officials say they’ve collected nearly $400,000 in revenue in the first two weeks of the ticket amnesty program. They say 7,400 tickets have been paid.


Under the program, drivers who received tickets for motor vehicle violations before Jan. 1, 2010 can pay their tickets without having to worry about late fees.


The program runs through Jan. 27, 2012.
