Is there a statute of limitation on traffic tickets in Alabama?

The statute of limitations is to prevent one from being accused of a crime when the witnesses may no longer be available and defense difficult. A traffic ticket is a notice of violation. In this case, you have already been notified of the violation and have not defended against it in the time allotted. As such, a traffic ticket does not expire and is not subject to a statute of limitations. Some jurisdictions will stop trying to collect, or declare on amnesty on tickets on a specific time frame.
