More than likely you will already have a bench warrant issued for Fail to Appear. Each court is different and may be willing to work with you if you make an honest attempt to work with them to get the issue resolved. The longer you wait the more likely you are to be arrested despite any attempts you make to work with the courts.

The question is a bit confusing, but if you are referring to an extension until you get insurance; I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it is way too late for that. I concur that if you did not make your schedule court appearance or petition the court for a new date, a bench warrant will be issued at some date and you will also face a contempt of court charge as well as the original citation(s). Your best option is to present yourself to the proper authorities and have a very good and honest explanation. If the warrant has already been issued, you will probably be taken into custody, so you might want to make preparations concerning bail/bond.
