A: If you missed a court date in Mecklenburg County for a speeding ticket, you likely have a Failure to Appear, which is not like an Order for Arrest. I would advise you to contact an experienced traffic attorney in Meck who can add that ticket back on the docket for you, and handle the Failure to Appear for you.
