Court Fines & Traffic Tickets
People often have to pay money as punishment when they break the law. These fines may be in place of or in addition to jail or prison. Many fine amounts are set by law. When you get a ticket for a traffic offense, the ticket may state the fine amount.
If you do not pay your fines, the court may charge you more fines, take away your driver's license, or even put you in jail. TexasLawHelp.org only offers limited information related to criminal law.
