Washoe Justice Court in Reno is offering scofflaws a chance to get straight with the law. Those who have failed to pay traffic tickets and likely have outstanding arrest warrants against them can have the warrants forgiven by showing up at the court to pay the tickets.
Generally, when a citation goes unpaid, the court sends a reminder notice to the last known address,read a statement from the court. If the court receives no response from the notice, an arrest warrant is filed for failing to obey the court order to appear or make payments. After the court issues a warrant for arrest, the DMV usually suspends the license.
Other fees may have accumulated in addition to the original fine, and those may still have to be paid, but it's better than being arrested, particularly while driving without a license. Many scofflaws don't realize their licenses are suspended.
