RAYMONDVILLE – A Raymondville municipal judge is working to help residents financially by offering a break in traffic citations.

Beginning October 1, Judge Felicita Gutierrez is offering amnesty to those with outstanding traffic citations written in Raymondville. She said the city has more than $400,000 in outstanding traffic citations.

Anyone with an outstanding citation can stop by her office and negotiate charges, including working off $12.50 an hour for community service.

“The DPS now has access to their traffic citations. They’ve always had that. And if you want to renew your Texas driver’s license when it’s your birthday and it’s to renew, you cannot renew it if you have traffic citations that are unpaid,” said Gutierrez.

Gutierrez said those with a warrant for their traffic citations can with visit her at her office to negotiate a deal. They will not be arrested.
