During the month of August, Dunwoody Municipal Court is holding an amnesty program for individuals with past due traffic citations and/or active bench warrants for failing to appear in court, according to a press release.
“Some people think this is a trick. It’s definitely not,” said Dunwoody Municipal Court Clerk Norlaundra Huntington. “We simply want to encourage people to come back to court by easing the financial burden.”
The program is designed to promote lawful driving privileges, settle outstanding violations with the court and reduce arrests. Those who want to take part can visit Dunwoody Municipal Court, located at 4800 Ashford Dunwoody Road, on Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. only.
During that time, if individuals pay their fines in full, all contempt fees will be forgiven. If the individual’s offense(s) requires a mandatory court appearance, the individual will be granted a future court date to appear before a judge, and all warrants will be cleared and warrant fees forgiven.
Forms of payment that will be accepted are cash, money order, cashier checks, and credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only) but no personal checks.
