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.

How long is the Statute of Limitations for traffic tickets in TX?

As such, a traffic ticket does not expire and is not subject to a statute of limitations. 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. In this case, you have already been notified of the violation and have not defended against it in the time allotted. A traffic ticket is a notice of violation. Some jurisdictions will stop trying to collect, or declare on amnesty on tickets on a specific time frame.
