Traffic Ticket Crackdown

If you have received a ticket in the state of Texas that you have not paid...you may be hearing from them soon.

Nearly one million drivers owe a combined 815 million dollars for tickets ranging from driving while intoxicated to misdemeanors such as no insurance.

The Department of Public Safety has given a private collection agency the right to contact motorists who haven't paid their bill.

Some people owe two thousand dollars or more. Initially they will get a notice in the mail and then within 30 days a courtesy call seeking payment.
