It probably ranges.. I got a parking ticket in Kirkwood ages ago and being as I spent almost no time there I figured I'd just ignore it.. Like 6 months later I get a letter that if I don't pay there'll be a warrant issued. Coulda been bullshit but I wasn't gonna take the chance.
I got a ticket when in Jersey. I paid the fine but it was "late" according to the people there so they sent my money (a check) back saying that it was late and that I owed then a late fee of 10-15 dollars. I called them and told them that I sent it on time and will not pay the late fee. They then threatened me by saying if it was not paid, I could have a warrant out for me for not paying, lose my driving rights in Jersey, and a few other things. I told them that I will mail the check back without the late fee and that was the end of the call. A few months later (about 6 months) I got a speeding ticket from a North Carolina state trooper. I asked him if he ran a nationwide check on me and he said he did not. I asked him to and told him the story. Nothing came up. I got another ticket about 6 years later and asked the cop to do the same thing and nothing came up. The lady was just trying to get extra money out of me with the late fee. But with totally not paying for it, I am sure my name would have come up on those checks. I still have not been back to that dump of a state called New Jersey.
