Thank you for the additional information.
You should begin by determining what has happened to the ticket and the attached fines and costs. The clerk will have this information and you can obtain it from them directly or, perhaps, on their website. You can locate their site via a simple internet search. For example, you would search, "erie county clerk of court". Once you locate their site, navigate around a bit and see if they have the information online. Most clerks will have a link such as "public information", "court case search", "pay your traffic ticket" or some other similar link.
If the ticket is still with the clerk, you can simply go to the local clerk of court office and pay the ticket and whatever fines were added for being late. You should also check as to whether the delinquency caused your driver's license to be suspended. If so, you will need to go to the local department of motor vehicles to obtain a new license.
As the ticket is so old, it may have been sold to a collection agency. If so, you will need to get the phone number of the agency from the clerk and contact the agency to pay off the fine.
The bad news is that you probably added a couple hundred dollars in fines and costs for being late. The good news is that you can probably have it all cleared up by the end of the week.
