What if I do nothing?

If you do not respond voluntarily, you can be arrested at any time – on a vehicle stop by a Police officer, or while at work, school or home by a Constable. You may then be handcuffed and transported to District Court to appear before a District Judge to answer to the charges in the warrant. In addition to other Warrant costs, there will be service, transport, and hearing fees for two Constables, plus any mileage costs incurred. This is potentially your most disruptive and expensive option.

Warrants assigned to Police Department and Constables do not "go away." They remain on the Police Warrant System until satisfied. Note: There is a Statute of Limitations of 3-years from the last activity on Traffic violations only.
