ONLY $35 FOR MOST WENTZVILLE MISSOURI SPEEDING TICKETS
The most common way in which people take care of their Wentzville Missouri speeding tickets is to simply pay the fine listed on the back of the citation. It’s easy, it’s straightforward, and it requires minimal effort on your part. But that’s by design. The state absolutely wants you to pay the fine listed on the back of the ticket (that’s why, as you’ll notice, there are specific instructions on the various ways you can make your payment to the clerk of the court). But what the court will not tell you on that ticket is all of the consequences that will come your way by making that decision.
ONLY $150 FOR MOST WENTZVILLE MISSOURI ARREST WARRANTS
Because paying the fine on your Wentzville Missouri speeding ticket is the same thing as pleading guilty to it. And an admission of guilt will allow the state of Missouri to put points on your permanent driving record
. What are points? “Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver (like someone who does not follow the law). In response to points becoming a part of your driving record, your automobile insurance provider will jack up your monthly rates through the roof. This sort of increase can be as much as 35% above your current premiums (and that’s if we are talking about only one or two points). If you calculate that out over the next several years, you’ll end up paying many thousands of dollars extra for insurance (money that could have gone towards basic living expenses).
ONLY $225 FOR MOST WENTZVILLE MISSOURI DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS
So why would someone want to plead guilty and take points on their driving record? The main reason is because people are not fully aware of the long term consequences. Because when you look at the fines listed on the back of the ticket, it usually comes to about $100. And then when you talk to an attorney (like us), you are told that the legal fees to fix the ticket are $35, and then the court will double the fines to something like $225. These folks quickly do the math in their head, recognize that paying $100 right now is less, and go with that decision. But as I’ve mentioned, that is a very costly mistake.
Here’s one more thing you should know about points: getting too many of them will result in a suspension of your driving privileges. This can and will occur when you receive a lot of points within one year, and when this happens, the state will automatically suspend your license for a full year. That will be twelve months of catching rides with friends and family members (because if you are pulled over for driving on a suspended license, the state will hit you with a misdemeanor criminal charge
