When you are given a ticket for a traffic violation in Nevada, you will be given a court date so that you may appear before the judge and pay any fines and fees the court imposes. If you miss your court date, the court will issue a bench warrant for your arrest.

Bench warrants can mean extra penalties like added fines and fees and your unpaid traffic tickets being reported to national credit reporting agencies – potentially affecting your credit score.

Therefore, it’s extremely important to attend court or to hire an expert attorney well-versed in traffic law to handle your case and prevent you from receiving a costly warrant.
