Nevada Court Suspends Thousands Of Traffic Warrants

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Justice Court has decided to suspend enforcement of more than one-quarter of a million traffic cases until 60 days after the governor's stay-at-home directive is lifted.

The court made the announcement Friday, saying the decision will affect about 270,000 cases. That means anyone who has a traffic warrant from the court isn't at risk of being arrested for the time being. Still, officials are encouraging people to pay their fines and resolve their cases as soon as possible.
