Ticketed in the states?

hello gang,

i was recently caught on a traffic camera in the city of lynnwood outside seattle for doing a right turn when it was a red light. as a result, a $124 dollar ticket was mailed back to my house here in canada. My question is do i have to pay it? what are the consequences if i don't? i think the ticket is undeserved. anyways, just want to hear your experiences with tickets handed out in the states

First off don't ever utter the phrase "hello gang" again. EVER.

To answer your question, next time you go to the States you could be stopped at the border and forced to pay at that moment, or risk getting your car impounded.

This question has been asked a million times.

If you get stopped again by the police in the States, you'll be thrown in jail.

If you are really against the ticket and don't think it was warranted, despite it. If it were really the principle, you would go down to court and hear it out. But then again, that is IF you are really just against an unwarranted ticket or just trying to escape a fine.
