Can the NTTA Issue an Arrest Warrant?
The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) implores drivers to pay their tolls with a host of harsh penalties. The agency can block your vehicle registration, stop you from driving on toll roads, issue misdemeanor traffic citations, and even impound your car. But, the NTTA does not have the authority to issue an arrest warrant.
However, if you ignore a citation to appear in court, these traffic citations can proceed to warrant status, and ultimately, land you in jail. These warrants are handed down by the Texas courts – not the NTTA — when you disregard a summons to appear for a scheduled hearing.
