During the month-long run of the Clean Slate incentive program, the San Diego Association of Governments will accept the cost of the toll plus a reduced penalty amount, which could be as little as around $20, down from as much as $100.
According to SANDAG, those who fail to pay for the violations could end up with a vehicle registration hold placed at the Department of Motor Vehicles, which in turn could lead to a ticket for an expired license plate. They could also be referred to a collections agency, or have the toll and penalty amounts deducted from their income tax return, SANDAG officials said.
Payments through the Clean Slate program can be made at SBXCleanSlate.com; by calling 619-661-7070 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays; and in person at the South Bay Expressway headquarters at 1129 La Media Road, between 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.
Through Wednesday, those who pay settle their debt for $20 plus the cost of the toll. Through the remainder of the program, the fine will be $25 plus the amount of the toll.
SANDAG officials said that since violators were mailed notifications of the incentive program last week, they had received several hundred calls seeking settlement.
