I was given a speeding ticket last year in April. I missed my court date. I sent payment in May via personal check and they sent it back. I got fired when I received the check so I really needed the money. I struggled to make ends meet and in July called asking if we could workout a payment plan on my ticket. They said No, that I had to pay it all in full. This week I received 2 letters saying I have 2 separate citations, one is for the fine of the ticket and the other I'm assuming is a failure to appear. I am a college student and while I was working part time, I no longer have a job. The total is $670.80. This is something I really cannot afford. If I couldn't afford $297 to begin with, I don't understand how they think I can afford almost $700. I'm scared of going to jail.
