Just $35 - Speeding and Traffic Tickets in St. Louis County, Missouri - $35
IF THE COUNTY REQUIRES AN APPEARANCE, THE ATTORNEY FEES WILL BE $75
When an officer of the law pulls you over for a speeding or traffic violation in St. Louis County, Missouri, he or she will almost certainly cite you with a ticket (although there is a slim chance that the officer will let you go with a warning). Once this happens, it is then up to you as to how the St. Louis traffic ticket is handled. Strictly speaking, you have three main options available to you:
FEES FOR MOST ST. LOUIS SPEEDING TICKET $35
1. You could simply pay the fine that is listed on the St. Louis speeding ticket, sign the back of the document where indicated, and mail this in to the court.
2. You could appear in court on the designated time and date to make an argument to the judge as to why the St. Louis traffic ticket should be dismissed.
3. You could hire an experienced St. Louis traffic ticket attorney to take care of the ticket for you.
Option one may seem to be the easiest way in which to dispose of the ticket. But in reality, exercising this option imposes a huge cost down the road. Signing the ticket and paying the fine is the same thing as pleading guilty to the charges leveled therein. This will enable the state to assess a certain number of points to your permanent driving record. “Points” reflect negatively on your record, and make you seem like a bad driver. As a result, your automobile insurance provider will increase your monthly premiums.
Option two is certainly a right that you have as a citizen (i.e. to appear before the entity that has accused you of having violated the law, ask questions, and present a defense). But you would be going up against a county prosecuting attorney who knows the law inside and out, understands court procedures fully, and has a relationship with the judge. You may in fact win your case, but chances are the court will order that you pay the fine.
