Say No to Predatory Court Fees
If you are one of millions of New Yorkers living paycheck-to-paycheck, paying off just one traffic ticket and its associated court fees can mean missing rent, going without food, and losing healthcare. Those who can’t afford to pay these fines and fees live with the constant fear of being arrested and jailed.
We need change now.
The End Predatory Court Fees Act (S.3979/A.2348) will help break this vicious cycle of poverty and punishment by:
- Eliminating the mandatory surcharge and mandatory minimum fines
- Eliminating parole and probation fees
- Ending incarceration and commissary garnishment for unpaid fines and fees
