Cleveland offers price break to parking scofflaws

CLEVELAND - Cleveland is hoping a $10 discount will help bring in some overdue parking fines.

The city is sending a message to 200,000 parking scofflaws, telling them that they can avoid late fees if they pay up within 30 days. Parking tickets usually cost $25, and the maximum late penalty is $10.

Officials figure that the city is owed more than $12.5 million from parking tickets that went unpaid between 1985 and 2003.
