Mandeville, La. - People who haven't paid traffic tickets issued in Mandeville get a reprieve from fines and fees.

The Mandeville Mayor's Court declared an amnesty period. That means from now until January 31, 2013 anyone with an unpaid traffic citation can just pay the ticket, and all late fees and contempt charges are forgiven.

The amnesty program applies to any outstanding traffic violation, no matter how old the ticket may be.

Fines can be paid over the phone with a credit card.

Citizens who want more information can call Mandeville Clerk of Court Kristine Scherer at 985-626-3144.

The amnesty program will end on January 31, 2013, after that all remaining overdue violations will be pursued. A news release from Mandeville states that includes warrants issued, late fees and contempt fees reinstated and driver's license being suspended.
