A: If you received a traffic ticket in Texas, called about it multiple times before, on, and after the court date, and were informed that nothing was on record for you, only to receive a notice in the mail four months later indicating a $250 payment requirement for the ticket, it raises concerns about communication breakdowns. In such a situation, it is advisable to contact the court immediately to seek clarification on the discrepancy. Explain the prior attempts to confirm the status of the ticket and the surprise notification received in the mail. Request details about the charges and inquire about any available options for resolution, such as challenging the ticket or arranging a payment plan.
