    I'm not sure about the number of years a ticket can be held against you, but I believe in Wisconsin, you have something like 7 days to pay a parking ticket, after which, the fine more than triples. If it doesn't get paid after that, they can yank your driver's license and/or suspend any and all of your vehicle registrations.

    right now they are busy entering the tickets from 1979.
    That's sad. Maybe they can still tag me for that hanging out the window in Fla. They're gonna have to keep going back a few years to pick up that fin for loud pipes in Hot Springs...

    If you no show or fail to pay the fine, they can throw your a** in jail (Criminal).
    Suspension of the license is a Civil remedy.
    Since all States get Federal $$'s for road building/maintenance, they must agree to be part of what is known as the Interstate Compact. That means violations not answered as well as suspensions, are on a National Database. If the State does not report these, they loose the Federal money
    Not all states are members of the NRVC. IIRC, there are 5 states, WI being one of them, that are not members.
    There are no stupid questions,
    There's just a lot of inquisitive idiots.

    Nope... No statute of limitations. Im a LEO in NJ and about two weeks ago I arrested a woman old enough to be my mom on a warrant out of Binghamton NY. Turns out she had a ticket 19 years old that was never taken care of... When we pulled her over for making an illegal left turn we wound up finding a warrant and had to take with us. I felt horrible taking her in, she was just a wreck over it. Anyway, we made some phone calls and she bailed herself out by paying the ticket amount. The lesson? All tickets... even parking tickets can come back to bite you.
