New program will help courts track tickets

December 20, 2006

Albany -- It'll soon be easier for Albany city courts to track you down if you owe money for various traffic violations. Court workers currently use 25 year-old software to enter every ticket one by one into permanent records.

Municipal court Judge Willie Weaver says the city is behind in filing tickets electronically, for parking tickets they're behind a year and a half. New software will speed up the process and make it easier.

"The state law requires that we electronically submit tickets and what we take in on them, and right now we can't comply with state law. We haven't been able to comply with state law in about six months because we don't have the software to do the transmission," said Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver.

The new software called Courtware will go into effect within six months in Albany.
