Do speeding tickets "go away"?

I got a ticket about 7 years ago in west Texas (Pecos County, I think). I never took care of it. Is there a statute of limitations where it just falls off, or is it there forever?

Dude, you're probably [censored]. Next time you go to renew your license, you'll get handcuffed.

Voluntarily contact them and they might use lube.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

I say just ignore it. I'm not going to say it's gone away, but if you aren't getting letters, it's not coming up when you get pulled over, and the yallow you to renew your license, don't worry about it. My theory is eventually it will go away, and if it doesn't, pay the warrant, plead not guilty, and then see if the cop shows up.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

how bout if i got a ticket in Florida 17 years ago. i paid it, but late. they sent me a notice saying i owed them more for a late fee. i never sent that in.

surely if i got stopped in Florida right now there would be no consequences, would there?




thank you. i am dumber for reading this.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

When you go to renew your license and a ticket comes up they just tell you they can't renew it and then give you a phone number to call which will tell you any warrants you have out. I did it yesterday successfully despite having some sort of outstanding ticket.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

Maybe not when you renew your license, but at DPS I have witnessed on several occasions people being arrested and handcuffed when they went in to get a copy of their driving record or an SR-22. Those people had outstanding warrants for, among other things, traffic tickets.

In reply to:

This is a good example of a widely held misconception about the system tjhat I shall now clarify.

A statute of limitations describes a maximum time limit, during which someone must be charged with a crime, after it is alleged to have been committed.

IOW, a SOL runs from the time the alleged crime is committed until that person is charged. It does not have anything to do with the time that elapses from the time you are charged, until they take you to court, or can convict you, etc.

that will be $100 please.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

scott, that was a perfect example of why attorneys can be pontificating pricks.
They have sent me stuff, I do have a warrant. I've even been pulled over,also in a wreck where they ran my license in. One officer told me about it, but didn't want to mess with it. The other officer saw it on his computer a few years ago, but didn't mention it to me. I just can't imagine 20years down the road some cop trying to give me the business over a speeding ticket from somewhere else.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

it just takes one [censored] cop and your going to jail, honestly you have gotten way too lucky i have never met a cop that wouldnt take someone in if they had a warrant no matter how old it is. I dont see anything wrong with what scottsins said he was just explaining something. just take care of it and avoid any trouble later

sorry for stating that your misconception was common, and that i would proceed to clarify it for yourself and others.

the $100 please was a joke.

jesus. i made it clear that your view on SOL was wrong, but common. That means that there's no degradation of you for thinking that way, since MOST people have the same view of it.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

That was helpful advice, Scottsins. Thank you for taking time out of your day to offer some free legal advice. I'm sure you were hoping to be insulted, so that was a nice bonus. We're all appreciative of being called pontificating pricks on occasion. That's usually the only reason I ever wear a necktie. So that I can keep the foreskin from obscuring my vision, you know.

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

As a member of the non legal public, thank you Scottsins for clearing up a common misconception. When I read it I did not even think of it as a direct response to the original thread made by a person who irresponsibly did not take care of their own actions and continue to choose not to unless forced to.

Your words were educational and quick to the point. I now feel empowered with such potent legal information and thank you on behalf of the planet lucky enough not to be lawyers. Ty and go have a beer for us.

I've been irresponsible and am hoping that there won't be any consequences. Can you give me some free legal advice? Oh, that's not the answer I was looking for, you prick.

I can personally say this is horrible, this advice. I got pulled over one day. The DPS dude ended up giving me a warning but he asked my buddy for his license. He didn't have it on him but gave the trooper his name. Trooper sent us on our way, then in about 5 minutes, he lit me up again, cuffed my buddy and took him to jail for an unpaid speeding ticket.

I had to pay his fine and fees to get him out of jail. He had no money on him. Wanna take that chance?

Are you [censored] kidding me? The guy helped you out and you're calling him a prick? Lighten up Francis. So far that comment of yours is the only prick-like post on this thread.

Yeah, I thought scottsins' post was well written, informative, and rendered in a nonjudgemental tone.

Still doesn't mean he's not a pontificating prick though

Re: Do speeding tickets "go away"? [re: robr]

When you don't pay a ticket your name is sent to a DPS database called OMNI. You won't be able to renew your license and if you ever get pulled over again and they run your name, a DPS warrant will show up for you.
