Best Answer

Only if you ever intend to go back inside the United States. When you signed the ticket, you promised to appear in court and to abide by the terms of the court. If you refuse to appear, you can be held in contempt of court and a the court can swear out a bench warrant for your arrest. If you ever re-enter that state, you could be arrested and held until you satisfy the judgment of the court.

You got speeding ticket in bufflo and you m in Canada how can you pay your speeding ticket from Canada?

You need to purchase an envelope and place a stamp on it, then put it in the mail system of Canada. It will then get mailed across the border to Buffalo. You could probably even pay it online, or even try and make some calls to the dept who gave you the ticket. Or if you are a permanent resident of Canada and dont plan on going back to the US, I'd burn the ticket.

How much does a speeding ticket cost in Indiana?

A speeding ticket varies by the location where you were ticketted, and the speed you were going over the posted limit. I have a ticket in front of me from Wabash, IN on US-24 for 15 mph over the limit. This this is what it says:The court fees are 110.50 ( you pay this amount whether or not you infact take it to court).Then the speeding penalties are 1-15mph, each mph over is 3.50.16-25 mph over is 40.50 per mphand 26 and up is 100.50 per mph over. For the last one you will usually be required to show up in court though.Then there is a base speeding price of what I believe is 50 dollars total but i need to check on that.So for me, i was doing 15 mph over the limit so i think the fine will be 213.50.

Does a traffic ticket become expired I got a traffic ticket but I'm going to leave the US to work in Europe for many years. If I won't pay will my ticket expire I'm residing in CA.?

No, tickets don't expire. If you get a ticket, you get a ticket. In CA, your ticket requires that you appear in court either fight it or pay it and receive your sentencing and traffic school if available. But if you evade your ticket and dodge court, a warrant can and probably will be issued for your arrest. My advice, just pay it.

If you got a speeding ticket in Washington state and live in Ontario Canada what happens if you do not pay it and will it affect future trips to the US?

An unpaid ticket will most likely get you a warrant out for your arrest in that state. Most likely just for ajoining counties from which the offense occured. Ontario will not enforce washingtons laws however, so you need not worry about that causing you problems. You should just pay the ticket or fight it though, so there are no future problems with your travels. An unpaid ticket will most likely get you a warrant out for your arrest in that state.

Can AZ send my radar ticket to Missouri?

If you get a speeding ticket in Arizona, Missouri will find out simply because each state shares records with each other. So if you get a ticket in one state and it appears on your record, it will appear on your record in all states. Under the Full Faith and Credit clause in the US Constitution, each state must respect the judicial proceedings of each other state. So if Arizona tickets you for speeding, Missouri must respect that.

How much is a speeding ticket in Arkansas for doing 80 MPH in a 65 MPH zone?

Fines for Speeding tickets anywhere in the US are set by the local Clerk of the COurt and the State. In order to find out what the fine is, call your local Clerk of the Court and they can tell you. It varies from county to county in some states and some states it is set statewide. The following is from this website: There is little uniformity when it comes to paying your traffic tickets in Arkansas. How, where and what you pay, depends on who gave you the ticket. Read your ticket carefully to determine your fine, the due date, and the location to send payment. Some cities have online payment programs, such as Little Rock. With your ticket number and a credit card, you can pay online. Other cities and towns within the state require you to mail your payment. Again, read the ticket. Some come with a handy, self-addressed envelope. Paying your ticket is only part of the violation consequences. Depending on the nature of your traffic violation your driving record may receive administrative points. If you fail to pay your ticket in a timely manner, your fees will increase, and your license risks suspension. Drive safe..
