If a person was fined in 1986 and dies in 2005 gets the ticket in December 2006 is the family responsible for paying the fine?

The estate is responsible for the fine, not the family. If the estate has been closed, and the proper processes were followed, the entity issuing the ticket is not going to be able to collect. Contact the estate executor or an attorney for specifics for your state.
