The Judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. You will also receive a Failure to Appear which also has points. Your license will be suspended. If you are caught driving while your license is suspended, you will have another case which is much more expensive. When your license is suspended, you need to resolve the underlying ticket and reinstate your license. This takes time. All this time, you are not able to drive or risk additional files and court costs. Instead of looking at attorney fees, fines and courts costs of hundreds, you might have over a thousand in attorney fees, fines and court costs. If you are worried that you don’t have the funds to pay your ticket, your attorney can continue the case to give you time to come up with funds. Some courts even give you time to pay.
