DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit court has collected about $300,000 through a 2-day program that allowed motorists to pay their overdue tickets without forking over cash for late fees or warrant fees.

The Detroit News reports (detne.ws/1SbFfhj) that 2,232 cases were closed. Nearly 1,900 suspended licenses were cleared.

Hundreds of people lined up Dec. 28-29 outside 36th District Court to have their cases settled. Another 500 people will be allowed to pay tickets or fines through the end of January.

Chief Judge Nancy Blount said in a release that many people “have been struggling to reinstate their driving privileges.”
