ONLY $35 FOR MOST SIKESTON MISSOURI SPEEDING TICKETS
If there is one big mistake that people make when they are dealing with a Sikeston Missouri speeding ticket, it is that they remedy the situation by paying the fine listed on the back of the citation. For most folks, this seems like the right thing to do: they were in fact travelling well over the posted limit, so now they should just pay the penalty and be done with it. But there is a big problem with following this strategy. Because when you pay the fine, you are admitting guilt. This in turn will allow the state of Missouri to put a certain number of points on your permanent driving record
ONLY $150 FOR MOST SIKESTON MISSOURI ARREST WARRANTS
And it is this set of circumstances that most people are unaware of (the idea that paying the fine on their Sikeston Missouri speeding ticket is the same thing as pleading guilty, which will then trigger points on their record). So what’s the big deal about points? “Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver who does not (or will not) follow basic traffic law. This is all that your car insurance provider will need in order to jack up your monthly rates. Even one or two points will result in an increase of at least 35% above your current premiums
. That can singlehandedly blow a large hole into anyone’s household budget!!
ONLY $225 FOR MOST SIKESTON MISSOURI DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS
But even when I explain this to people, a lot of folks will still opt to pay the fine on the ticket (and take the points). Why would someone want to plead guilty, even though they are aware of the fact that the subsequent points will jack up their auto insurance rates? Because if you pay the fine as it is listed on the back of the ticket, you’ll notice that it is set right around $150. If you hire an attorney to fix the ticket, the court will not put any points on your driving record, but in exchange, the court will nearly double the fines to about $250-275. Now obviously, $150 is less than $275. But what people are not taking into account is that those points are going to add thousands of more dollars in insurance that you’ll pay out over the next several years. So why would someone pay the original fine and take the points? Because of short-sightedness.
But that’s not the only negative consequence of points. Because if you receive too many of them (especially over a short period of time), then the state will actually suspend your driver’s license. This type of suspension will last for a full year in length. During this period it will be unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle. And if you are caught driving on a suspended license, then you will get hit with a criminal misdemeanor charge (that carries potential jail time and a large fine).
