I was issued a traffic ticket for following too closely back in February 2012. I forgot all about it and didn't pay the fine or show up for court. The address on my licence was to my old apartment, so I never got the court rescheduling notices. I just found out that I have a warrant issued for my arrest with a $200 bond.
How do I get this taken care of without being arrested or appearing in court? Is it as simple as having someone go pay the fine for me?
My original fine is $50.50 + 57.50 court costs. I see on the web site that an additional $100 may be issued if there is a warrant involved.
I'm not sure how a bond works. Will I have to pay the $200 bond, PLUS the original fine PLUS late fees? I have no idea how much this is going to cost me. Any help is appreciated.
