    Got a question-
    What is your depts policy on scofflaws that ignore traffic tickets. Yes, I know after a certain time a warrant is put out and the license is suspended.
    Here is the deal- You stop a guy from over 500 miles away. he is visiting. Give him paper (speeding/stop sign, whatever).
    He never shows and never pays. He goes back home. Should he get stopped in his home state, it's doubtful you will have him brought to you for a ticket. So what happens?
    I know in 50 years when he shows up in your state again he can be taken in but what about in the meantime?
    Personally, i don't like it. It's like the guy got away with it. Then the mayor wonder how come we have 25 million in unpaid tickets. This is why. His fine was $87.00 but costs and fees brought it up to $250.00. see how it adds up?
    we had a guy brought in on scofflaw warrants and they gave him a hearing. He was local. $32K in tickets dismissed if he would plead to about $2 grand with 6 months to pay. He got away with it too.

    Suspension of license in my state, so if he visits again (10 days later or 10 years later) and gets stopped, I take his car and he gets an expensive ticket.

      The Driver's License Compact should allow his home state to suspend him for failure to appear in another state.

        What Iowa said ^.

        In Maryland, if you fail to appear for a payable citation, then your license is suspended. If the violator lives out of state, then Maryland MVA contacts the DMV of that state and a suspension for reciprocity will be placed on the violator's driver's license in his home state.

        Warrants are only issued on citations that are must appear offenses in court, not payable citations.

          Can't officers arrest them if they are from out of state and make them bond out as kind of a guarantee? I don't have it in front of me, but Im pretty sure when I got AAA, their paperwork said if you are traveling far away from home, some agencies will arrest you for speeding and make you post bond. Hence the AAA card which guarantees the bond amount
          Yeah. That would go poorly. Like, on the Scale of Fail, somewhere between "Titanic" and "Chernobyl."

            ^^^ IM not sure about other agencies, however if arrested 3 states away for a traffic warrant, we WILL NOT extradite you...meaning an officer will not travel 3 states to get you for running a red light. I also doubt that the "record" would show up 3 states away unless its for a serious felony, then it would be entered into NCIC, however, thats not for traffic warrants.
            What would the "3 states away" state do with the bond? Will they personally serve the warrant and advise the suspect he had to be in court next Tuesday?...in YOUR jurisdiction? It would be too much of a hassle for a traffic ticket...3 states away.

            Theyre probably safe until they start to get their license suspended or they get caught in the home state agin

                  If he is out of state and doesn't have my states' license, my state will generate a license, suspend it and notify his state if it is in the compact.

                    I can arrest if I feel you are going to disregard the citation, no matter what the offense is. However, simply living out of state is not grounds for disregarding a citation.

                      ^ Same in Virginia



                      And "Just Joe" is right... it's not worth worrying about for a simple traffic offense.

                        I think you misunderstood. He meant that in the "vacation state" rather than receiving a simple speeding violation, the speeder is arrested. If they choose, they can pay the bond and be free to go, or they can just wait for their time in court. That way if they skip out, the bond is simply confiscated. Since the issue is handled at the time of the violation, there is no need for extradition, etc.

                        That was how I understood it anyway. Sometimes I just make things up in my head as I go

                          We do this. First we'll escort the violator to our PD to post. If they can't post they go out to jail and see a judge in the morning.

                            Yes they can be arrested --------but the word is MAY arrest not SHALL/WILL arrest-----------------I don't know of many officers who WOULD do this just because the person was from another state. It isn't that big of a deal because of the interstate compact................................like I posted before their home state will suspend them for not appearing in my state.

                              I know some places require you to appear to court whether or not you want to plead guilty/no guilty. Lets say an Alaskan driver got pulled over for running a light in Florida, will the courts make him fly all the way back to Florida to appear when its time or can he just pay the fine via mail? Not sure if Florida is like this so its hypothetical.
