There is a warrant out for my arrest
for failing to make a court appearance
required because I failed to mail the court proof
that I had maintained automobile insurance for six months
which was a "deal" the prosecutor made with me
because I had been ticketed, twice in as many weeks,
for failure to show proof of "financial responsibility"
(which is not something I generally have)
because I had allowed my insurance to lapse
and if just two of those citations occur
they take away your driver license
so I paid them a lot of money
and agreed to keep insurance for six months
which I did not in fact do
because I had no money
and allowed it to lapse again

(Official reminders might have saved me
but I was not reminded
because I did not check my post office box
because my rent on the post office box was overdue)

I have checked on this and
the only recourse I supposedly have
is to present myself to the court, in person
where I will go that day before a judge
who will decide how much money
I must pay
in order to leave again
or he might just keep me there.

Any advice?

Aside which was already stated:
Don't let these things happen.
If you can't afford insurance on your car, take the bus.
