Can not paying a bunch of parking tickets lead to an arrest warrant?

I got a bunch of parking tickets that I didnt pay because I dont have the money to pay them right now. A dude told me that after so many unpaid tickets the cops'll put a warrant out for my arrest. Is that true? Can I really be arrested for not paying the tickets already? I plan to pay them eventually. If I get arrested, can I pay them to get out of that?

    Your license or registration will be suspended and the tickets will double. You should have paid them off right away. You must pay them off before they arrest you.

    You can be arrested for not paying only one parking ticket. If you are arrested you will likely have a cash only bond and the amount of the bond will be the amount owed on the tickets and you will not be released until the bond is paid or you have served time in lieu of paying the tickets (normally $25 per day)

    You can get arrested for driving on a suspended license since they will suspend it for not paying the tickets.

    It is possible. A more likely scenario is the car might be booted or towed and impounded for failure to pay, greatly increasing the amount you owe and must pay before you and your car are on the road again. Unlike any possible payment plan you ight arrange on overdue tickets, the tow and impound fees generally have to be paid off in full before a car is released, and that usually also requires for the tickets to be cleared as well. Acting sooner rather than later to work out payments may be your best, least expensive option.

    You can have a warrant issued for your arrest for parking tickets. The judge is super interested in hearing about how you are going to get to him, when you feel like it. When you get arrested you will be sitting while he waits to get to you.
