The Birmingham City Council has approved a 60-day period of amnesty for outstanding minor traffic, parking and non-moving violation tickets.

Between July 17 and Sept. 17, late fees for outstanding tickets would be waived.

Judge Andra D. Sparks told the council during its meeting Tuesday that it had been approximately four years since the last amnesty period and that such programs had been successful in the past.

The council voted unanimously in favor of the measure.
