Yes. It is highly likely that an arrest warrant has been issued for the violator. The best option is for the person to retain legal counsel or at least obtain legal advice as soon as possible. It would not be advisable to contact authorities until he or she has spoken with a qualified attorney. Please be aware, if a warrant is in effect the person can be taken into custody if stopped by authorities or in some cases the police department with jurisdiction will contact said person at their residence.

It will vary from state to state, county to county and city to city, however, the short answer is that your license will be suspended.

In most states you can (and will be) arrested for failing to pay the civil fines imposed for traffic violations. Enough of these "Fail to Pay" and or "Fail to Appear" and you could be found as a "Habitual Traffic Offender" which is a felony.
