Consequences of ignoring a citation

Failure to complete one of the options above on or before the response date on the citation will result in:

  • A warrant being issued for your arrest at which time the fine amount will be the maximum allowed by law PLUS Court costs and fees.
  • A request to the Texas Department of Public Safety for the denial of driver license renewal.

A telephone call does not constitute a response. Inability to pay a fine is not an excuse for failure to answer.

Please note juvenile offenses (ages 10-16) must appear in person with a parent or legal guardian for a court hearing. 

If your fine is not listed on fine schedule, call the court for the fee associated with your citation.
