Summary The City of Lubbock is owed more than $1.4 million in unpaid traffic fines that have been issued over the past five years. Our investigation discovered that many offenders have multiple unpaid tickets and have warrants out for their arrest. We caught up with one of the top five offenders, who told us he is repeatedly pulled over by police but never taken to jail, despite his outstanding warrants.
