The city of Dunwoody Municipal Court is holding an amnesty program for people with past due traffic citations and/or active bench warrants for failing to appear in court, the city announced.

“The incentive of the program is to promote lawful driving privileges, settle outstanding violations with the court and reduce arrests,” the city said.

The program will run through August at the court, located at 4800 Ashford-Dunwoody Road. During the month, if individuals pay their fines in full, all contempt fees will be forgiven, according to the city. If the offense requires a mandatory court appearance, the person will be granted a future court date and all warrants will be cleared and warrant fees forgiven.

Forms of payment accepted are cash, money order, cashier checks and Visa and MasterCard.
