A: Sometimes cases do get lost in the shuffle, but it's never something to rely upon.

The citation likely gave you a court date. If you missed that, there's probably a warrant out for your arrest and a suspension on your driver's license.

Otherwise, see if you can find out the status of your case by looking on the court's website. Note that calling the court on the phone may rekindle the case if it is just dormant.

Let me know if you need more help. If you've lost the citation, you're probably going to have to check numerous websites.
