During the month of May, Dunwoody Municipal Court will hold an amnesty program for individuals with past due traffic citations and/or active bench warrants for failing to appear in court. The program is designed to promote lawful driving privileges, settle outstanding violations with the court and reduce arrests.
“In light of the pandemic, we think this amnesty program is so important that we plan to offer it two times this year, starting in May,” said Dunwoody Municipal Court Clerk Norlaundra Huntington. “Amnesty eases the financial burden for individuals to clear their cases.”
Those who want to take part can visit Dunwoody Municipal Court, located at 4800 Ashford Dunwoody Road, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays 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. All warrants will be cleared and warrant fees forgiven.READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Is Another Relief Payment Coming Soon?
Since last June, Dunwoody Municipal Court has operated efficiently and effectively using safety protocols designed to protect against COVID-19, including socially-distanced seating, mandatory masks and temperature checks. By late last year, the Court had caught up on cases that were put on hold due to the pandemic.
“Attorneys, defendants and other courtroom visitors tell us they feel confident in our safety protocols,” Huntington added. “We’re encouraged by their positive feedback.”
For the amnesty program, forms of payment that will be accepted are cash, money order, cashier checks, and credit cardsMORE NEWS: Southeastern U.S.: A Rainy Week Ahead
