If I don't show up in traffic court, what happens?

That depends on your bail status and what you were supposed to be in court for. If you've posted bail, it could mean you are found guilty and your bail is forfeited. If it was for a mandatory appearance, the judge will issue a bench warrant for your arrest. If you were to be there for a traffic trial, the judge may try you in absentia (the officer will present the case without you, and you will probably be found guilty).
