ONLY $35 FOR MOST CHARLESTON MISSOURI SPEEDING TICKETS
There are really only a couple of ways to take care of a Charleston Missouri speeding ticket: 1) you can roll the dice and try your luck with the court by yourself; 2) you can hire an experienced traffic ticket attorney to fix the matter for you. We obviously believe that it is better for you to get in touch with us!! But if you decide to go it alone (and represent yourself), there are a few things that you should be aware of first.
ONLY $150 FOR MOST CHARLESTON MISSOURI ARREST WARRANTS
To begin with, most people with a speeding ticket in Charleston Missouri do nothing more than pay the fine listed on the back of the citation. They take this action because they do not believe there is any other route to go in. But by paying the fine, you are admitting that you are in fact guilty of speeding. This may not seem like all that big of a deal (especially if you were indeed travelling above the posted limit). But a guilty plea will allow the state of Missouri to put a certain number of points on your permanent driving record
. And it is points on our driving record that will lead directly to much higher car insurance rates.
ONLY $225 FOR MOST CHARLESTON MISSOURI DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS
What are points? “Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver (or at least a driver who does not wish to follow basic traffic laws in Missouri). So from the insurance industry’s perspective, if you have points on your record, that means that you are not someone who habitually obeys the law. If you are someone who does not follow traffic laws, then there is a much higher statistical likelihood that you’ll end up in a traffic accident. In order to cover this increased risk (that the industry says you now pose), your car insurance provider will severely jack up your monthly premiums
While you may disagree with the industry’s point of view, the best way to avoid this kind of outcome is to simply give us a call. We will answer all your questions, describe your full range of options, and get you back out on the road quickly. But if you wait too long, you could end up missing a required court hearing. When this happens, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest (which will remain active until you either pay a large bond to the court, or you are arrested).
But perhaps the worst thing that you might have to deal with is accumulating too many points on your record. If such a thing happens over a short period of time, then the state of Missouri will suspend your driving privileges altogether! This type of suspension will last a full year. During this period, it will be unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle of any kind. And if you are caught driving on a suspended license, the penalty will be stiff: a misdemeanor criminal 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 work closely with the local prosecutor to get your Missouri speeding ticket reduced from a moving violation down to a non-moving violation. The reason for this is because a non-moving violation does not come with any points to your record. And that is by far the easiest way to ensure that you do not have to deal with the above-described craziness!!
