tickets, MCSI can help identify eligible boot and tow candidates. Our
services include:

Driver’s License Suspension
Let MCSI help you monitor ticket count for parking and red light camera
violations. Driver’s license suspension may occur if a debtor has 10 or
more unpaid parking tickets or 5 or more red light camera violations. Our
support includes:

  • Warning notice creation: required 45 day notice of debt; sent to municipality for approval
  • Final suspension notice creation: if no payment is made during 45 day period, notice is created for your municipality to be forwarded to the Secretary of State
  • Payment arrangement monitoring: promissory note signed or payment plan established. MCSI also alerts municipality when suspension may be lifted
No Cost Collections
MCSI offers clients a no cost collections option. Any fees or collections
costs become the responsibility of the debtor rather than the client. This
option is fully compliant with state and federal statutes, and can effectively
reduce your collection agency commission rate to 0%. For full details,
please consult with an MCSI representative.
