EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Eugene drivers who are cited by police for a problem like a broken tail light or minor license or registration violation now can have their ticket "fixed."

 

Under the "fix-it ticket" program drivers can either pay the citation or fix the problem and keep the citation off their record.

 

The Register-Guard reports drivers are given a compliance form, which can be checked by a police or community service officer who signs off on the "fix."

 

The driver still must pay a $50 municipal court fee, but avoids the citation, which can cost up to $200.

 

The program was started by Officer Gregg Magnus who previously worked in Beaverton, which has a similar fix-it ticket program.
