Just $35 - Speeding and Traffic Tickets in Kirkwood, Missouri - $35
If you have ever signed the back of a Kirkwood, Missouri, speeding or traffic ticket and mailed in the associated fine, then you already know that this takes care of the St. Louis traffic ticket and leaves you in good standing with the courts. But what you may not have realized is that by doing so, you were also pleading guilty to the charges stated on the St. Louis speeding ticket itself. This may not seem like a terribly bad thing to have done (especially if you were in fact speeding). Yet the consequences can have lasting effects for some time.
FEES FOR A ST. LOUIS SPEEDING TICKET $35
Pleading guilty to the St. Louis traffic ticket allows the state of Missouri to assess “points” to your permanent record. Your driving record is like a history of everything you have done since you began driving. If points are assigned to it, this is the state’s way of indicating that you have a bad history of obeying the traffic laws. If enough of these points collect over a short period of time, the state can also suspend (or in some cases, revoke) your driving privileges altogether. Additionally, the accumulation of points will cause your automobile insurance to rise. This is because your carrier will use the excuse of your driving record to label you a ‘risky’ driver, and increase your monthly premium as a result.
But the affordable Kirkwood, Missouri, traffic and speeding ticket defense lawyers at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken have a different plan in mind. Our goal is to take over your ticket(s) and get them knocked down to a lesser imposed charge (like a non-moving violation). This will ensure that no points are given to your driving record, and your insurance rates stay the same.
