New Mexico Traffic Ticket Information
Was your trip to New Mexico ruined by a traffic ticket or citation? Or are you a commercial driver or interstate trucker worried about the effect of a New Mexico Traffic Ticket on your license? A lot of what happens now will depend on how you responded when pulled over for your ticket.
You should have been issued a New Mexico Uniform Traffic Citation.
If you signed the New Mexico Uniform Traffic Citation and the "Penalty Assessment" box is checked, you have already admitted your guilt and agreed to pay a fine. It will be extremely difficult and very expensive to try and fight the ticket at this point.
If, however, you signed the ticket and either the "Traffic Arraignment" or "Court Appearance" box is checked, there is a good chance that you can keep this ticket from appearing on your record, or costing you points on your license.
If you have forgotten to pay your New Mexico Citation, or failed to appear as ordered, you may well have a warrant out for your arrest, and the next time you try to renew your license it may be suspended. Don't wait to be arrested or have your license suspended before dealing with a traffic ticket.
