Traffic tickets are not something that can just be ignored. The laws in El Paso and New Mexico are strict if you fail to pay your traffic tickets and do not fight the citations. If you have unpaid tickets, it is important to reach out to an experienced lawyer to find out how you can deal with the legal mess you are in. Brandon L. Lettunich, Attorney at Law has extensive experience helping clients resolve problems resulting from failure to pay moving violations or other traffic tickets.
What Happens If You Have Unpaid Traffic Tickets
If you have unpaid traffic tickets, your license to drive a car could potentially be suspended. If the tickets are parking tickets, rather than moving violations, a boot could be put on your car or your car could be towed. You could also end up with a bench warrant out for your arrest, which is a likely outcome if you are supposed to come to court in New Mexico for a hearing on the ticket and you fail to show up. If there is a bench warrant out for your arrest, this will come up when police run your name through the computer for any reason such as when you are pulled over for a routine traffic stop. You could find yourself handcuffed, taken into police custody and even spending time behind bars until you resolve the issue with the bench warrant. Fines and costs also usually increase significantly if you don't pay your tickets promptly.
