LAWRENCEVILLE -- Gwinnett's speed demons and red-light renegades take note: You only have until Thursday to pay outstanding traffic citations penalty-free.

Throughout the month of March, Gwinnett County Recorders Court has been offering amnesty on unpaid citations dating as far back as 1983, recalling the bench warrant and waiving the subsequent $25 bench warrant fee if paid by the end of the month.

Individuals will also receive the appropriate forms to reinstate their expired driver's license if it was suspended due to their failure to appear in court.

That grace period ends Thursday.

Bench warrants will remain active for those that have outstanding cases and do not take advantage of the amnesty program, and they will be subject to arrest.

Fines may be paid at Recorders Court from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Participants are asked to bring a copy of their citation or citation numbers if possible.

Gwinnett County Recorders Court is located at 115 Stone Mountain St. in Lawrenceville.
