TALLAHASSEE -- Most of Florida's county court clerks and comptrollers are taking part in a statewide program to help people with suspended licenses and outstanding fines get back behind the wheel.
Operation Green Light runs during mid-October (dates vary) in 60 of Florida's 67 counties. It gives people a chance to save on overdue fees and fines and is intended to make it easier to get their licenses back.
Nearly half a million Floridians have suspended licenses because of various violations.
Operation Green Light runs the week of October 12-19. Dates vary by county. The counties set a common period for the program, according to Clay County Clerk of Courts Tara Green, because drivers could have fines or fees from multiple counties.
