WHITE RIVER JUCTION, Vt. (AP) - Windsor County residents who have had their driving licenses suspended for failing to pay traffic tickets will have a chance to get their driving privileges back at a fraction of the cost as the state expands a pilot program.

Vermont is holding a driver restoration day on Friday at the state office building in White River Junction.

Suspended drivers will be eligible to pay $25 per delinquent ticket to get their driving privileges reinstated.

The program was launched in Chittenden County in March and helped more than 1,200 residents of Chittenden, Lamoille, Franklin, Grand Isle and Washington counties. Over 6,700 tickets were reduced and the state collected nearly $150,000.

The goal is to reduce the number of suspended drivers and improve safety by encouraging drivers to be licensed and insured.
