Failure to Appear

On traffic tickets issues in Georgia, there is a space for you to sign. This signature is your promise to appear in court on a specific day. If you do not appear before the judge, you can be charged with a FTA or failure to appear charge. This charge is a misdemeanor and carries significant penalties.

The first penalty is that the court can issue a bench warrant. A bench warrant is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. If you were to be pulled over by a police officer for any reason, they could place you under arrest, and you would be taken directly to jail.

A significant civil assessment can be charged and this would be added to any fines that have already been assessed.

A DMV hold can be placed on your driver’s license or registration. This hold may result in your driving privileges being suspended.
