If this shows up on a police clearance certificate, then it is safe to accept that a warrant for your arrest was indeed issued. However, the warrant would not be for the traffic fine, but rather for you failure to appear in Court (contempt of Court).

It is never advisable to "just leave it" or to ignore traffic fines, but even more so when a summons to appear in Court has been served on you.

You will have to approach the prosecutor at the Magistrates Court in the district at the Court where you were supposed to appear (and did not) for further assistance in this matter. You may also need the assistance of an attorney in your area who specialises in criminal law matters.

I hope this answered your question.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
