Amnesty program running through April 15th

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah-Chatham Recorder’s Court Amnesty Program is underway.

Through April 15th, if you have past-due citations that have Failure to Appear contempt fees, those can be forgiven.

Monday, WTOC spoke with Savannah-Chatham Recorder’s Court Chief Judge Tammy Stokes who tells us the city collected nearly $30,000 in fees last year and they're hoping to make more this year because the program lasts a little longer.

"It allows us to capture some of the old, traffic citation fines that are out there. People want to get them settled. We'd like for them to get them settled. But the most important thing is that they have a chance to get their license, their driver’s license privileges reinstated,” said Chief Judge Stokes.

If you're interested in the Amnesty Program, go to the Court Cashier's office on Montgomery Street from 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday, through April 15th.
