Is there a limit to how long court fines can be collected?

Question Details:

I was convicted of felony hit and run in 1987 and ordered to pay $350 in court costs. I never paid the fine. Is this fine still valid? Might I still have a warrant? I've had dealings with the police since then (nothing criminal, part of my job sometimes) and they have had to run my license but nothing ever comes up about it and honestly I'm to scared to bring it up. But lately I'm afraid that it will come up.
