Just $35 - Speeding and Traffic Tickets in Maryland Heights, Missouri - $35
When you receive a Maryland Heights, Missouri, traffic or speeding ticket, you are given a certain period of time in which to deal with it (usually thirty (30) days). After this time has passed, and nothing is done to handle the St. Louis traffic ticket, a bench warrant for your arrest will be issued. Unsurprisingly, most people wish to avoid this kind of outcome, and will therefore simply sign the back of the St. Louis speeding ticket and pay the associated fine. This may appear on its face to be the best course of action to follow, but there are a number of things you should be aware of first.
FEES FOR A ST. LOUIS SPEEDING TICKET $35
Paying the fine to make the St. Louis traffic ticket go away is the same thing as you pleading guilty to the charges listed on the ticket. In other words, you are admitting that the charges as alleged are true. Again, this may seem like the proper thing to do, but as a result of this choice, the state will assess points to your permanent driving record. “Points” are negative strikes against your record that the state uses to indicate that you have had difficulty in your driving history. As these points accumulate, your automobile insurance premiums will rise. This is because your insurance provider will use the points as an excuse to label you a ‘risky’ driver, and raise your rates accordingly. In addition, if enough of these points collect on your record over a short span of time, the state can suspend (or even revoke) your driver’s license.
But the affordable Maryland Heights speeding and traffic ticket defense lawyers at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken are in the business of keeping your record clean. We do this by negotiating with the local prosecutor to get the charges amended (i.e. lowered) to a lesser charge (like from a moving to non-moving violation). With this result, we can make sure that your insurance rates are kept in check, and that you are free to drive without fear of St. Louis arrest warrants.
