Flagler County discounts traffic tickets, court fines

2-week discounts part of "Walk In Drive Out" program

By Stacey Readout - Assistant News Director

FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. - People who have overdue traffic tickets or court fines in Flagler County will receive at least a 40% discount for two weeks, according to Flagler County Clerk of Courts.

“We are offering this program to help our residents who have tickets, fines and fees that were in collection before June 1 of this year,” said Court Clerk and Comptroller Gail Wadsworth. “This may allow some to restore their suspended driving privileges once the outstanding fines and late fees are paid.” 

The program, called "Walk In Drive Out," is available from September 19 through September 30.

While late fees will not be waived, anyone paying tickets, fines and fees within that time period will be spared the costs of collections surcharges.

“These charges can be considerable,” Wadsworth said. “It can be as much as $82.40 on a $206 speeding ticket for going 10 to 15 mph over the speed limit.” 

Those who are uncertain about whether or not they owe money to the Flagler Clerk of the Circuit Court can do a name search on the website: www.flaglerclerk.com.

“Walk In Drive Out” between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in the first floor Central Receipting Office, Kim C. Hammond Justice Center, 1769 E. Moody Blvd., Building 1, Bunnell.

Payments will be accepted in cash, check, money order or major credit card. Third-party checks will not be accepted. Phone and online payments will also be accepted.

Suspended driving privileges cannot be restored to drivers who have overdue tickets in another county, an expired driver’s license or other misdemeanor offenses that would make them ineligible.
