If I don’t show up in court on a traffic ticket, will a warrant be issued?
Each county and municipality handles this differently. But, in most cases, the failure to appear in court will result in a warrant for your arrest and the suspension of your license.
Law officials won’t track you down. But the warrant will remain on your record and your license will remain suspended indefinitely. Consequently, if, in the future you’re ever stopped for speeding or even issued a parking ticket, you will be caught. The resulting fines and fees will be much stiffer, and you’ll be tossed in jail.
