If you park in the downtown Cedar Rapids area either for business or fun, chances are you've gotten a parking violation. Tickets can also pile up if you're not careful. But once a year, Park Cedar Rapids does a program that can get your parking tickets forgiven.

It's called the Forget The Fine Citation Forgiveness Event. From now through December 21st, Park Cedar Rapids will accept donations for area homeless shelters and family service shelters. In exchange, you can have up to $100 in parking fines forgiven. On the spot. Gone forever!

In order to have the fines dismissed, you have to donate items that are similar in price to the amount of fines that you want dismissed. You can get the full list of items you can donate HERE.

People interested in getting rid of their fines and taking part in the program can visit the Park Cedar Rapids office at 349 4th Ave. SE in Cedar Rapids Offices are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
