This question has been answered a lot of times on this site. Research it. About a month ago I posted what I believe is the correct answer. Seems there is a lot of collection activity for old and really old tickets comming out of some areas of the state. Basic answer is traffic tickets are a class C misdemenor with a 2 year limit, however, if you failed to appear for the original complaint you might be facing a charge for failure to pay, which does not have a SOL. " If your going to Texas, you better stay clear of the law!" to paraphrase and old rock song.
