The Athens Police Department will be collecting outstanding tickets the hard way.
Anyone with an outstanding ticket is subject to having their vehicle compounded in the annual Tow Round Up.
APD Captain Ralph Harvey says vehicles on the tow list will be collected the week of April 16 and April 23.
If a vehicle is taken away the owner must first pay the outstanding ticket and then go to the towing company to pay for the tow.
Harvey says in order to avoid the extra cost, those with outstanding tickets must pay before this Friday.
Tickets can be paid online, by telephone at 1-800-984-5973 or at the Athens Police Department.
