The Statute of Limitations does not apply to traffic tickets. You have received appropriate notice of the violation and decided not to fight it. The money is a valid debt and needs to be resolved.

It sometimes happens if the tracking system is changed. But there is no expiration on the tickets.

It seems from my own past experience 5 years.

Speeding tickets and minor traffic violations in the state of Minnesota will stay on your record for 5 years. Major traffic violations will stay on your record longer.

There is no statute of limitations on a traffic ticket. You violated a law and you were notified of it. They have as long to collect on the ticket as they care to track the ticket record and whether it has been resolved or not.

As far as I know each state has its own record for you. for example someone I know got a lot of speeding tickets in California but in Indiana his record was clean.

Traffic tickets stay on your record for seven years in Colorado. Violations for driving cannot be removed from records in Colorado.

Contact your local DMV and get a copy of your record.

Red light camera tickets are moving violations. They will be on your driving record.

No, they are not like traffic tickets. They are a permanent part of your criminal history record.

You could try traffic school. This will take points from your license. You can only go to traffic school every 3 years (I am not sure on the time). Contact your local DMV for details about these classes. Otherwise, only time will take these tickets off of your record.

An unpaid traffic ticket goes into "failure to appear" status. Normally when this happens, the court sends a notice to the DMV to suspend your driver's license and/or a warrant is issued. They only get released and are removed from your record (and replaced with the proper adjudication) when you pay them off.

If by "infraction" you are referring to a trafficinfraction - no. A traffic infration will not show up on a criminal record. However, it will show up on your driving record.

Your driving record is permanent. Traffic tickets never just come off. Fortunately though. Most insurance companies only check your driving record for the last 3 to 5 years. So if a ticket is older than that they will not count it against you when determining your rates.

Define "infraction." If you are referring to traffic tickets and DMV violations - they do not appear on your criminal history record.

Traffic citations follow your driving record; they're not confined state to state. No matter where you're licensed or in what state you got a ticket, it will be attached to your driving record.

Except for parking tickets, a ticket will stay on your record for 7 years and if you go to traffic classes it will not count against you but can be seen. If commerical driver you can no longer have tickets off record by classes and this will hurt truckers because it counts on or off the job.

There are no time limits on traffic tickets. They can be collected on any time after they are issued. Most insurance companies will not count them after a period of time. And the points are removed from the driving record eventually, the length varies by state.

NY will report to SC and SC will put it on your record but NY does not place out of state minor tickets on your record.

Only if there was a fatality. That is not correct. In the State of Texas, County of Dallas and soon to add the County of Denton. Those two district courts will put your traffic tickets on your criminal record as Class "C" Misdemeanors. They started this a few months ago, and costing people jobs and apartments.

It is very unlikely that a traffic ticket will be dismissed if the Officer does not record the birth date correctly.

There is no statute of limitations on traffic tickets. If you don't pay it or show up in court to fight it, they can (and probably will) revoke your license and issue a warrant for your arrest. But what if you did pay it back then. And the ticket or any record of it have never showedtill now.
