How do you find out if you have a bench warrant in Pennsylvania without paying a website online?

Asked about 1 year ago - Brooklyn, NY

Years ago I was pulled over for speeding in Pennsylvania. I was issued a ticket, but failed to pay it and/or appear in court. I have attempted to search for myself on online databases, but nothing comes up for PA. I am leaving on the 17th for Europe, and want to me sure this is cleared up. Who can I contact to resolve this? I am unsure what city or county it was in, and most sites tell me to call the county clerk where it happened. Thanks in advance for your help.
