New Mexico Traffic Citations

BEWARE! If you sign the New Mexico Uniform Traffic Citation form, and the “Penalty Assessment” box is checked, you are admitting guilt and agreeing to pay the fine. Once you have done this, it can be very difficult and expensive to try and fight the ticket.

Failure to Pay: Forgetting or failing to pay a New Mexico traffic citation can result in an order for failure to appear in court as ordered and will result in a warrant for your arrest. Your driver’s license may also be suspended.

Traffic Accidents: Failure to contest a traffic citation involving an accident can have serious consequences if you are sued for damages.
