Because being issued a citation for a non-criminal traffic violation is often taken care of by simply paying the fine, many people find themselves overlooking or forgetting about the infraction as they go about their busy lives. What these people do not realize is that failure to pay the imposed fine, failing to show up on the designated court date, and sometimes simply paying the deignated fine may make matters even worse.
Failure to pay the imposed fine or failure to appear in court can be serious enough to leave lasting consequences, such as the potential suspension of your driving privileges, increase of insurance rates and potential for jail time if you are pulled over for driving on a suspended license.

Non-Moving Violations such as:

Traffic infractions may also cause your car insurance rates to go up and may result in a driver's license suspension if you have multiple offenses.
