BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Birmingham is offering amnesty for those facing traffic tickets or misdemeanor court cases.

Mayor Randall Woodfin says anyone with traffic or parking tickets or misdemeanor cases through Municipal Court can now get a "fresh start."

Al.com reports Birmingham's "Fresh Start" Amnesty Program began earlier this week and continues through Sept. 17.

During the two-month period, tickets can be paid without late fees or arrest. Misdemeanor cases can also be settled without fear of arrest.

Woodfin says there's no limit to how many cases that can be paid during the amnesty period. Cash, debit or credit cards, cashier's checks and money orders are accepted Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. On Friday, the offices close at 4:30 p.m.
