Why don't you try it out and see if you get away with it. I will guarantee that the ticket is entered into a computer system before you get any copies. We'll find out when they come to serve the warrant on you in handcuffs.

Yes, appear in court, the officer who wrote the ticket must apear when you do, if there is no evidencve of speeding IE: radar gun, then you stand a good chance of having the chgarges dropped. Come with a good explanation of how you can demonstrate that you weren't speeding. Many times just appearing is enough, the officer who wrote the ticket will not be able to show up for various reasons and they will have to drop the charge, in other cases the clerk will offer downgraded charges and fines when you go in to set a court date to help keep the judges calendar free for more serious things.

Tickets don't expire. As long as the state has a record of the ticket, they can collect on it. The ticket serves as notification that you have broken the law, meaning that there is no longer a lawsuit that you are living in fear of not knowing if it is going to come or not.

The 'system' prefers to do it within 2 weeks on a fixed Gatos type camera. But mobile cameras can take a week or so.

Yea, its called a bench warrant. If you didn't pay it, the cops are looking for you my friend. You will be arrested, you will go to jail, and now have to pay the ticket, the warrant, and the cost to come get you. Oh yea, there is NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS ON ANY TRAFFIC TICKET.

You have three days in New York State to pay your ticket. If not, you can be arrested. They'll even come look for you in another state or country.Another View: Every state is different. The time frame should be printed somewhere on the ticket itself. If you can't find it call your local traffic court and ask.

A misdemeanor reckless driving ticket comes off most insurance records after 3 years. A reckless driving ticket will usually come off your driving record in about 5 years.

Ticket comes from the French language.

There is a warrant for arrest given- You had better go and face them, or matters are only going to get worse- when you least expect them. Remember, they can come looking for you.

The cost of your heavy right foot is about to come home and hit you in the bank account. The fact that you "never had a speeding ticket " is irrelevant to the situation you are now facing. Now you do have one, and it sounds like a really costly one at that. Perhaps you need to re-think your attitude towards driving laws, and how expensive it is to break them. Not only will you have to pay a large cash fine, upon conviction in court, but you will CONTINUE to pay for the next few years, in increased insurance costs.

If you have gotten a ticket and feel that you have gotten it unfairly, there are ways in which you can beat your speeding ticket. Many people think that they have no choice but to pay once the ticket has been issued. Really, this is not the case. You can take action to get out of having to make the payments. You will have to pay the court fees if you do not win the case, however, so you need to be fairly sure that you were innocent or you will just be adding more costs on top of what you already have to pay. The first way to beat your ticket is just by filing a challenge and then hoping that the police officer does not show up to court. He or she has to come in and testify that you were in fact speeding in order for the charge to hold. It may sound surprising, but many officers are too busy to do this. If you file and they have too much going on, they simply will not show up for the court date. When this happens, your ticket will be thrown out and you will be good to go. You can also write a letter to the officer of ask to meet with him or her in person. You will need to do this after you have gotten the ticket but before you have to pay it, so act quickly. If you go to the officer and talk to him or her about how you do not believe you were speeding, they may still let you off without a ticket. You will not want to communicate with them in an angry fashion, however, but just as a common person seeking to talk intelligently about the situation. Finally, you can fight it. Even if the officer shows up to court, you can hire a lawyer and attempt to prove that you were not speeding. These extreme measures will show the judge that you are serious. Just be sure to follow all of the court regulations and treat the judge with respect, and you can quickly get the law to work on your side. These things sound strange because people never do them, but they really do work. You can save yourself a lot of money if you put a little time into trying to beat your speeding ticket.

Well you dont have to and nobody will come after you in Canada. But next time your in USA and if a police officer runs your plate or if you get pulled over. they will take you to the police station and make you pay for the ticket from before which might have gone up because of late and fines on top. If you cant pay for it they will take you in. I think its better you just pay if your in the USA (in that particular state of the USA a lot). Other then that if you stay in Canada it will never come on your record or nobody will come to you there after a ticket. So your call. Hope this helps.
