Not in the UK they don't ! Every motoring offence is logged on the Police National Computer (PNC). Police vehicles are fitted with Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras (ANPR). If you drive past a police car with an unpaid traffic ticket, the ANPR will automatically check your number plate against the PNC - and alert the office driving that your car needs to be stopped !

You will then be pulled over, interviewed, and summoned to court to explain why you haven't paid the outstanding ticket.

Dart tickets turn into warrants?

Yes, they do turn into warrants. They're looked at as traffic violations, and cost $200. My recommendation for this is to go to the court and offer to sit it out. They don't have room in the jail in Dallas for people to sit out traffic violations, and will more than likely just drop the warrant.

This was answered in another post, but i will post again and say that most tickets that are unpaid do not just get forgotten. A warrant can be issued due to tickets that are unpaid. I have arrested several people that have had warrants for failure to pay tickets. Usually you will be let go as soon as the ticket is paid. If there were a time limit then everyone would just not pay and wait it out.

What if you have 10year old court warrants?

they shoudnt mean anything cause it is over 10 years but to be on the save side take it to your nearsest court or policestation and make sure they have checked it and cleared it ..... <Sorry, warrants never just go away and they always have the same importance. Go to the court and deal with it. Depending on what they are for some arrangement can be made to settle them. If traffic with fines then you can usually make payments. If jail time and you have a clean record since the judge may reduce or lessen it. Either way, warrants don't just go away. If they are traffic and you have moved then all states do not share with each other. You may be clear as long as you stay out of the state that issued them.>

How do you find out if you have traffic warrants?

Contact the court where you were supposed to appear and ask. OR - go to your local police and ask them to 'run' your license.
