Austin Traffic Warrants Lawyer
The State of Texas can suspend your driver's license if you accumulate too many tickets or you fail to address even a single outstanding ticket. If you fail to pay a traffic ticket and miss a court date, a failure to appear (FTA) warrant may be issued for your arrest. Now, you may be wondering what options you have.
Not paying the fine and hoping to avoid being arrested is your worst option. More than likely, you will end up paying the fine plus additional fees, and you could be denied renewal of your driver's license.
Of course, you could plead guilty or "no contest" and pay the fine, but that would be recorded on your driving record, which could result in higher insurance rates.
Your best option may be to plead not guilty and post a bond in court to lift the warrant. You will no longer be subject to arrest, and you will have the opportunity to fight your traffic ticket.
