What happens if I do not pay a traffic citation(s)?

Failure to pay a traffic citation or appear in court can result in a warrant being issued for your arrest as well as a suspension of your driver's license. If you feel you cannot afford a citation or you feel that you are not guilty of a certain offense, simply appear in court. Please do not ever ignore a citation. Citations do not resolve themselves and not addressed can cause many more issues for you in the future.
