NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - People with municipal and traffic court warrants and fines will have a chance for a fresh start this weekend.

Stand with Dignity will hold its second municipal and traffic court warrant clinic, Saturday at St. Peter Claver School.

The event, for people with suspended licenses and municipal attachments, is a way for people who have fines to wipe the slate clean without the threat of arrest.

The clinic will not address parking tickets, red light tickets, or insurance issues. Organizers say there are nearly 30,000 drivers on area roads with some form of traffic attachment.

Participants must pre-register in person Thursday and Friday, at 217 North Prieur Street between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. A limited number of walk-in registrations will be permitted on the day of the clinic.

The clinic will be Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at St. Peter Claver School located at 1019 North Prieur Street.
