The City of Atlanta Municipal Court is offering amnesty to individuals facing arrest and other penalties due to delinquent traffic tickets and misdemeanors. The amnesty program, which runs April 3 through May 12, permits individuals to resolve their outstanding cases with reduced fines and fees.

“Our goal is to ensure that we have licensed and lawful drivers on city streets,” said Ryan Shepard, Municipal Court Administrator. “After receiving a citation, many individuals fail to appear in court, resulting in additional fines and fees, and in some cases, a warrant being issued. The Municipal Court’s warrant amnesty program offers an opportunity to resolve outstanding issues once and for all.”

Only individuals with charges currently in Failure-To-Appear status are eligible for this program. Court sessions will be held weekdays at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. on a first-come basis. Individuals can sign up each day for the sessions beginning at 7 a.m. for same day service.

The court will also hold two special sessions during non-traditional hours:

  • Saturday, April 15, at 8 a.m.
  • Wednesday evening, April 19, at 6 p.m.
  • When the amnesty period ends, remaining outstanding warrants will be rigorously enforced.
  • For more information about the program or a warrant you may have, visit or call 404-954-7914.
