Just say, I get a speeding ticket...

....in a state that we are visiting and I don't pay the ticket, will that state notify my home state of Pennsylvania?

Those pesky traffic cameras.......and in our Corvette....."I can't drive 55" !

This has not happened to me...yet.

I'd imagine they'd put a warrant out for your arrest at the time of the court hearing since you didn't pay and you then don't show. Not likely worth the cost of extraditing you from another state but I sure wouldn't show up in that state ever again.

I keep getting emails saying I owe a traffic fine in NY but I've never been in NY nor do I ever plan to be!
Maybe they'll mail you the summons and fine info.

Not only is it possible that you'd be issued a warrant for arrest but, that warrant will go onto a nation wide data base. So, the next time you're cruising around in YOUR STATE, in your little 'Vette' and a tail light is out, and local LEO decides to pull you over for it, guess what he/she is going to prior to exiting his/her vehicle, RUN THE PLATE FOR WARRANTS. So, in your "hypothetical question" , I'd hypothetically PAY THE TICKET so it would not come back to haunt you.

And one more thing. In many states and jurisdictions, the fine and or, the ticket may be waved if, the person attends a "traffic school" which, in many cases is only about 4-8 hours long. And, it might not even go on your record either.

Depends on the state. Some states a red light camera ticket is a civil case instead of a misdemeanor. If that is the case it will only bite you if you get stopped for any reason in that particular state but won't haunt you at home.

If you got a ticket from an Officer that you signed to appear on it will depend on the state. Most likely no state will extradite for a speeding ticket, which in most cases is an infraction, not a misdemeanor. What very well may happen though is your state may withold your registration until you take care of the ticket, it all depends on the agreements between states ect. All warrants are put into a nationwide system, so if that state does issue a warrant you can be arrested if stopped. Like said before I would "hypothetically" pay the ticket, it is not worth the chance.

First... When you enter PA you will see some signs.. Residents inform me that they are not kidding. (No personal knowledge though).

In days of old there were some states that did not inform your home state... However with improvements in communications and improvements in agreements between the states it is my understanding that is no longer the case.

HOWEVER it may take 'em a while to forward the info and your state may or may not suspend you for fail to appear.

My recommendations are as follows:
1: DO NOT SPEED
2: Pay the fine.

It is always best to take care of any tickets as soon as possible. When in doubt contact the court clerk for that jurisdiction, they will explain the options and repercussions in a simple, nonjudgmental way, it is what they do all the time. Small things can grow very large if not cleaned up right away.

I would agree....pay the fine. Nothing worse then getting stopped in a state that has a warrant for your arrest. And you know it would happen at the worst possible time.

Its called phishing. They most likely want you to open it so they can get your email address to spam the hell out of you. Ignore this type of email and don't answer them and don't open it or they will sell your email address to all kinds of spammers. Not really that dangerous but a PITA

Around 1990 I was living in CA, I got a speeding ticket outside a small town in NE AZ. I paid the fine, and kept all the receipts etc. for years.

Renewed my CA drivers license, moved to NC in 1995, got my new license there. Move to GA in 1998, and go to get my GA license, and WHOOO - according to their records, I had a warrant in AZ for that ticket supposedly being unpaid. Of course, as we were preparing to move to GA, and only a couple weeks before, we had run across all that documentation for that ticket, and of course, 8 years later, decided to throw it all away. I called the courthouse or the police department, and told them the story - they had just moved, and cleaned out a lot of their records; oh no......... But, they found the records that I had indeed paid, got with the GA DMV and ensured that any and all records reflected I had paid that fine.

It is very scary to think that for almost 8 years, there were some records out there showing that I had a warrant for an unpaid ticket that had been paid.

If the camera caught you I bet you broke the law. Pay the ticket. What makes you better than all others who break the law?

Not familiar with all states, but likely you would not be extradited. Also likely you will lose no points on you license (does the camera show who the driver is or the name of the person?) Likely just a company that does this for the jurisdiction and gets a cut of the fines and nothing to do with anything that would/could result in an actual arrest.
