DUNWOODY — Motorists who have past due traffic violations in Dunwoody have an opportunity to have the additional and contempt fees waived during the month of August.
During the month of August, Dunwoody Municipal Court is holding an amnesty program for individuals with past due traffic citations or active bench warrants for failing to appear in court.
“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 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 you pay your fines in full, all contempt fees will be forgiven. If the your offense requires a mandatory court appearance, you 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. For more information, call 678.382.6973.
