The East Point Municipal Court recently announced that the city will offer an amnesty program for drivers with unpaid parking and traffic tickets.
From Monday, April 8 through Saturday, April 13 and Monday, April 15, the city will hold its six-day program. The court will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday during the Amnesty period. The court will also be open on Saturday from 8 am to 12 p.m.
At the option of the judge, “failure to appear” fines may be waived for outstanding tickets and drivers with previously suspended licenses may receive a release from the Court Department upon payment of fines.
Those who are on active probation with the City of East Point or have warrants for their arrests are encouraged to contact the probation department during the amnesty period.
Once the amnesty program is completed, all unpaid fines will be turned over to a collection agency and warrants will be issued through the police department. The city encourages individuals to make use of this program to avoid any additional collection charges or unwanted arrests. Early arrival is suggested.
