Hello, I got a ticket in 2005 in a small town Bremond texas while passing through when I was in college for going 10 over. I did not pay it because I was young and stupid and thought as long as I didnt go back to that town it was fine. The ticket was for $195. I found out that i can no renew my drivers license, so I looked it up through their city website and now i owe $1067. It claims I had no insurance, which I have always had so i dont understand that, and 2 bail jumpings for $260 each. I never received anything from the town, that might be because I moved shortly after that back to Dallas. Do I have to pay all this in order to get my license? I called Bremond and they said I must pay each fine in order for my record to be cleared.
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Texas
You have to resolve it somehow. You may want to find out the name of the City Attorney who prosecutes these tickets and see if they are willing to work out an agreement for something less or even consider hiring a local attorney and see if they can get you a better deal. Otherwise you have to pay the tickets to renew your license.Thank you for allowing me to assist you. As you know, we work on the honor system here and cannot always provide you answers that you like.
