I received the ticket in November 2007, the failure to appear in December 2007. I moved out of the country in January 2008, which is why I simply forgot about this. However, while abroad, my drivers license expired, and with these tickets, I can't renew it. I still get letters from a law office in Houston about these charges. What's the best way to handle this, without paying the huge fee and resulting demerits if I plan on getting car insurance?
