Due to a tremendous response, the DeKalb County State Court Traffic Division is extending the deadline to register for its citation amnesty program from July 9 to July 20. 

The program waives contempt fees for failure to appear in court for individuals facing penalties due to delinquent traffic tickets. 

The program is available to any individual with citations issued from January 2010 to December 2017, and court sessions will be held weekdays at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.



Sign up for the program online here. The court will also allow signups for available sessions starting at 8:30 a.m. each day for the same service.

Citizens can sign up for text/email notifications for their assigned court date for amnesty here.

People who want to clear penalties and warrants under this program are encouraged to sign up early. When the time-limited amnesty period ends, any remaining open cases and outstanding warrants will be “rigorously enforced,” the county said.
