Unpaid Alabama Speeding Tickets
All the issues related to speeding tickets including imposing fine and other lawsuits are dealt by the local courts of law. If the driver pleads guilty, he has to pay fine. If the driver does not plead guilty of the offence, he can file a lawsuit defending his stand. However, if fine is imposed, it is mandatory for the driver to pay the fine within a stipulated period.
One could have his license suspended if he doesn’t pay the penalty for a speeding ticket. Details of motorists within a particular state are compiled as an online database. As per a common understanding, this database is shared between states that are under an interstate agreement. Vehicle registration could be withheld in one state even if the crime has been committed in another state. Other consequences of unpaid speeding tickets include late fees penalty, vehicle seizure, negative points on driving records resulting in increased insurance rates, and even in imprisonment.
According to the Alabama State Traffic laws, new driver license cannot be issued to a person with an unpaid speeding ticket if the offense has been committed in any of the states included in the interstate agreement called Nonresident violator compact.
