The DeKalb County State Court Traffic Division announced Wednesday it is launching a citation amnesty program.
The program waives contempt fees for failure to appear in court for people facing penalties due to delinquent traffic tickets. The registration period ends on July 9.
“The goal of our citation amnesty program is to provide individuals with open or delinquent citations an opportunity to efficiently resolve their matters and restore their driving record,” said Presiding Judge Shondeana Morris.
The program is available to anybody with citations issued from January 2010 to December 2017.
Court sessions will be weekdays at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
