Consequences of Ignoring a Citation
Failure to complete 1 of the 4 options shown above on or before the response date on the front of this 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.
If a warrant for your arrest is issued, you will be subject to arrest at your home, place of business or wherever you may be found.
A telephone call does not constitute a response. Inability to pay this fine is not an excuse for failure to answer.
Juveniles (ages 10-16) must appear in person with a parent or legal guardian for a court hearing. A court appearance is also required for Driving Safety Course or Deferred Disposition. Do not mail the fine.
Special Instructions for Juveniles
You and your parent are required to appear before the Court.
You and your parent have a legal obligation to provide the Court in writing with your current address and residence. The obligation does not end when you reach the age of 17.
On or before the 7th day after the date you or your parent change residence, you or your parent shall notify the Court of the current address by completing a Juvenile Change of Address form (available at the Court Clerk's window).
A violation of the address change requirement may result in arrest and is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by fines up to $500.
