It took standing in line for hours, but hundreds of drivers were able to resolve traffic tickets in Pine Lawn yesterday.
The city had sent out letters warning ticket holders that they had outstanding $50 fines. All of the letters warned that failure to appear at court on August 8th at 3:30 PM would result in a warrant being issued. That meant a line of ticket payers that wrapped all the way around the block.
It took several hours for everyone to get into court, but by late Thursday evening, everyone had seen the judge.
Several people in line said they had received no prior warning about the tickets, but city officials say previous warnings had been distributed and that the long waits could have been avoided if violators had paid their fines on line.
