speeding ticket/court question:

i never payed that ticket i got in September, and obviously missed the court date it had with it, and i got a letter saying the following:

Your court date has been rescheduled to December 12, 2005 at 6:00PM at the City of Camilla Courthouse and so on...

Failure to appear could result in the suspension of your license and a warrent blah blah.

Fines Owed to Date: $288

Citations:
Contempt of Court
Speeding

-----

Given this letter, is it still too late to pay the fines? Or am I still at point where if I pay this week I don't have to deal with this court bull****?

Re: speeding ticket/court question:

Yep yer ****ed. There is no way out of the ticket and it will not be dropped to a lesser charge. You will also have to pay the ticket plus court cost more than likely. So all in all yer hosed.

Re: speeding ticket/court question:

Mine got suspended for not paying a ticket about 8 years ago. Didnt make one bit of difference on the insurance.

Yep, you gotta go. Have fun paying the 100+ ticket, the 100+ court costs, and whatever fine contempt is.

Re: speeding ticket/court question:

Was it your first offense? Did you HAVE to go to court AND pay ticket. or just pay the ticket and you didn't, so then you had to go to court... Just go and explain, and apoligize,tell them what happend,and be ready to pay fines and everything that day if you can. And they probably won't go too rough on you
but go ahead and pay the speeding ticket now, before you go to court, that will look better than had done nothing

Re: speeding ticket/court question:

Go on your court date. They'll call you before the judge. Tell him that you're sorry and tell him that you didn't mean to miss the other court date (lie if you have to). He will not send you to jail. They will charge you the fine for the original offence, plus an added bonus for missing the first time. I would be prepared to spend twice the original amount.

Showing early probably won't do anything, but it couldn't hurt to try. Not showing will ensure yourself of a warrant for your arrest.

Re: speeding ticket/court question:

i seriously doubt they'd give him driving school now, after missing his first court date.

I wish I could have taken online driving school.. I've been twice and it sucks more everytime.

If you ignore mail/phone calls/cops comming to your house they will give up eventually and leave you alone.
