ONLY $35 FOR MOST WEST PLAINS MISSOURI SPEEDING TICKETS
When it come to speeding tickets in West Plains Missouri, the worst mistake you can make is to treat the matter as if it is no big deal. Because when you treat a traffic ticket this way, bad things come your way as a result!! How so? Well, for instance, if you do nothing about your ticket, and you end up missing a required court hearing, the judge will automatically issue a warrant for your arrest. That warrant will remain active unless or until you: 1) hire an attorney to get the warrant pulled; 2) pay out a large bond to the court to have it set aside; or 3) you are eventually arrested by a law enforcement officer. So if your ticket has reached this stage, please do get in touch with us immediately.
ONLY $150 FOR MOST WEST PLAINS MISSOURI ARREST WARRANTS
But by far, the worst thing you could do with a West Plains Missouri speeding ticket is to pay the fine listed on the back the citation itself. Unfortunately, this is exactly what the vast majority of people end up doing (because they honestly believe this action is the right thing to do). But when you pay the fine, you are admitting guilt to the underlying charge of speeding. This might not seem like all that big of a deal now… until you get your next car insurance bill in the mail
ONLY $225 FOR MOST WEST PLAINS MISSOURI DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS
When you plead guilty to a traffic ticket in the state of Missouri (by way of paying the fine), the state will assess a certain number of points to your permanent driving record. The exact number of points will depend on how fast you were travelling above the posted limit. But even one or two points will lead directly to an increase of about 35% (or more) above your current monthly rates. Why would your car insurance provider do this to you? Because from their perspective, those points will indicate that you do not habitually follow the law. And since people who do not follow the law end up in traffic accidents way more frequently than those who do, the insurance industry has to jack up rates in order to cover this increased risk that you now pose. Or at least that’s the reasoning they give!
And one more thing about points on your driving record
: getting too many of them within a short period of time will result in a full suspension of your driving privileges. This suspension will run for twelve month, during which time it will be unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle of any kind. And if you are in fact caught driving on a suspended license, the penalty will be a criminal misdemeanor charge (which can come with potential jail time and a large fine).
So what can we do for you instead? Our main goal will be to get your speeding ticket reduced from a moving violation down to a non-moving violation (such as “Illegal Parking” or “Defective Equipment”). This is because non-moving violations do not come with any point to your permanent driving record. And if there are no points, there are no worries!! So please do give us a call, and we will get to work on your case immediately!
