Has anyone ever missed their court date for a speeding ticket (obviously forgetting to pay the fine also)? What happens?

I say make a good one up though and contact them before they contact you, My mom contacted them and they told her she was luckey there was going to be a warrent out for her but that is New York I dont no how it would be where you live but probably the same, Good luck x

just come up with a family emergency, but as of right now you will have a local warrant. if for any reason you are stopped you will go to jail and need to be bonded out. any emergency will do they do not do any extensive checking on the reason.

The state of humanity is indeed not in good shape when we are trying to find the best lie to make everything all right. How about you keep your honor.. call them up, and tell them you just completely forgot and you would like to reschedule.

I got a speeding ticket too. Just turn yourself in and pay the fees. You do not want to get pulled over and have a bench warrent for you. They will take you to jail.

Call the court clerk and tell them the truth. They will reschedule to another court date and may even give you your liscense untill the court date and clear up the bench warrant. I forget what the paper is called but even if you get pulled over again, the cop cant take you to jail cause on your paper it will have your new court date. The same happened to a few friends of mine, let me ask around for better info for you.

yeah my last ticket I was clocked going 48 over and there was no way I was going to be able to fight that one... I just paid the damn ticket and dont speed too much anymore, damn hill coming up over a hill and then they were coming the other way, slowed down as much as I could, I was going even faster but O well...

down here in VA, it depends on what you mean by 'speeding ticket'....was it aggressive? reckless? or just a speeding misdemeanor?....in any case, you wouldn't get a warrant for your arrest, they'll send you a bill
