Radcliff, KY asked in Traffic Tickets for Kentucky

Q: How long is an expired tag ticket good for in ky? 13 years old and just now coming up! I was arrested on a warrant onit

I can't recall the ticket. Was 13 years ago. Iv tagged 2 other vehicles in my name since that vehicle, it never came up. Iv been in the court house and in court and had my name ran several times in 13 years and it never came up ever. I was arrested in a warrant (first time ever arrested and I have no record) and it is for an expired tag ticket from 13 years ago. How can this be? And what should I do. (and this is in ky)

A: If it is a warrant, it is good until the case is resolved. Get proof of registration from your county clerk For the vehicle in question as well as proof of your current registration and take it to court with you. They will likely dismiss the case upon presentation of this proof.
