    Um...Help.
    So I got a ticket about a month ago.
    Similar to "My dog ate my homework.", my cats like to play with paper...Guess what vanished...Yes, the ticket.
    So I called the court today, I live in Pasco county, where I got the ticket. I asked them for the ticket number.
    ...They said the only ticket they have on file is the one I got in August, but they don't have the one I got in October.

    This is the kicker:
    The lady said I was responsible for keeping the ticket so that I could pay for it.
    ...Funny...Isn't the cop responsible for turning the ticket in too? Thousands of people lose tickets yearly. Of course, I have to be the exception - someone who lost their ticket and it's not on file....Now most people would get lucky and hey, the cop didn't turn it in, so no ticket! But I know the drama and luck I go through in my life....The lady said I should call back every day to see if they got it...But it just doesn't make sense...I got the ticket almost a month ago, shouldn't they have it on file by now??? I'm really stumped to see what I should do here.... =\
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    hrm.

    You don't have your copy of the ticket and they don't either. Sounds like when I ordered a dell monitor, received two, called them and told them I'd gotten an additional one in error and was told that was impossible.


    Call again in a couple weeks

    They should really digitalize these things. I think it would make peoples lives easier if you could digitally access tickets and fines.

    Sometimes you can't beat just plain old paperwork - everything's getting a bit too "big brother" at the moment.

    I just don't want to have to pay late fees and stuff....What doesn't make sense is maybe it got lost? I mean...The cop should've filed it at least 2 weeks after it happened...Plus I don't want to get my license suspended...But maybe I got lucky?

    Yea, if you could have it sent to your phone as a reminder, or emailed to you. Great idea and good point.

    They will eventually send you a court notice saying they want to see you in court on a certain date for not paying the ticket (if it ever gets processed), which then of course if you dont show up a warrant gets put out for your arrest, or just play really dumb and when/if you get it call and tell them you completely forgot... they are usually pretty understanding in my past experiences. I say dont pay it until then, think of it this way... pay an extra 10-20 bucks then in late fees (if it happens), or pay ~150 some now that you may never have to pay if the ticket got misplaced... Sure its probably not the "right" way to do it, but its sure how I would go about it... Quit worrying about it until you get a notice in the mail. My 2cents

    I wish that's how much late fee's were.

    From the bottom of my ticket notice:

    "WARNING: $300 WILL BE ADDED TO THE BAIL AMOUNT IF YOU DO NOT PAY BY THE DUE DATE"

    He got the ticket a month ago. He should have already received the notice.

    Well...While spraying underneath my bed to kill any bugs, guess what I found! Yep! The ticket!!! I had 30 days from October 30th to pay for it and as you guys can see, I called on the 24th...You guys think I'm in the clear? I DID get a whole flurry of traffic school flyers randomly last Friday...I'm too scared to call the clerk's office haha

    ....Just have to get $250 somehow....

    I'm sure you will sell your current computer and buy another one for $250 less soon....

    You don't have the option of an online traffic school to reduce the fee?
