No, you will not be arrested. Should you not respond, you will be sent a pre-warrant letter in the mail. At this point you may still inform the Court as to what you would prefer to do regarding your citation.
If you fail to respond to the pre-warrant, a warrant will be issued. Once you receive a warrant, a hold will be placed on your driver’s license and you will not be able to renew it. An additional hold will be placed on your vehicle registration; you will not be able to renew or register your vehicle. Additional court fees will apply.
Please read your plea form. See additional eligibility requirements.
