Only $35 For Most Joplin Missouri Speeding Tickets
The main question on everyone’s mind when the subject of speeding tickets come up (whether in Joplin Missouri, or anywhere around the state) is how to get them fixed. It’s a good question, of course. But what do we mean when we say, “Getting a Joplin Missouri speeding ticket fixed”?
When a Joplin Missouri traffic ticket attorney fixes a ticket, he or she is basically working out a deal with the local prosecutor to get the citation reduced from a moving violation down to a non-moving violation (like “Illegal Parking”). When the ticket is handled in this manner, no points are assessed. And that’s really the whole idea: to avoid incurring points to your permanent driving record.Only $150 for Most Joplin Missouri Arrest Warrants
“Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver. In fact, it is the existence of points on your driving record that will lead directly to greatly increased car insurance. This is because the auto insurance industry thinks of points as an indication that you do follow basic traffic laws. And people who do not follow the law are more likely to get into a car accident. So in order to cover that increased risk, your insurance provider will jack up your monthly rates (by as much as 35% above your current premiums).Only $225 for Most Joplin Missouri Driving While Suspended Tickets
But that’s not all! Because if you allow too many points to accumulate on your driving record, then the state of Missouri will even go so far as to suspend your driver’s license altogether. This can happen when you receive a lot of points within one or two years. The suspension period will run for a full twelve (12) months, during which time it will be unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle. One more piece of useful information: if you are caught driving on a suspended license, you will get hit with a misdemeanor criminal charge (which comes with all sorts of bad stuff, including potential jail time and a big fine).
So the question becomes, “How does someone receive points to their driving record?” This is very easy to answer, because there is really only one way it can happen. All you have to do is plead guilty to the traffic ticket, and the points will be assessed by the state of Missouri. And pleading guilty is made very, very easy. How easy? Ever notice on the back of your traffic ticket that it lists out the fines to be paid? Once you pay those fines, the state will regard it as an admission of guilt. As mentioned, this will in turn lead to points on your record (and the attendant rise in car insurance).
Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans do not contact an attorney to help get their traffic tickets fixed. Instead, they simply pay the fine, take the points, watch their insurance bills grow, and then complain about how difficult the world is. But all it takes is a simple phone call!
