What will happen if I do not call and I do not show up for court?

A warrant will be issued for your arrest and more fees will be added to your fines. In addition, a charge of Failure to Appear in Court could be placed against you. Notice will also be provided to the Department of Public Safety (DPS), which will result in the suspension of your license. If you posted a cash bond, it will be forfeited to pay your citations.
