Good morning

I was arrested for drunk driving in June 2015 and paid bail of R1500 the following day. My court date was set to 25 February 2016. I failed to attend court as i was not feeling well.I have a doctor's note with me.

What can i do at this point as i am worried that if i go to the police station they might arrest me for not attending court. Who must i contact.

Thank you for your help.
