ONLY $35 FOR MOST MACON MISSOURI SPEEDING TICKETS
Here is a short list of negative outcomes that you will be dealing with if your Macon Missouri speeding ticket is not handled properly. This comes as a shock to most Americans (“How could a simple little ticket cause so many headaches?”) They assume that all they need to do in order to dispose of the matter is to simply pay the fine listed on the back of the citation. But when people take this action, they are making things incredibly difficult for themselves. Why? Because paying the fine is the same thing as pleading guilty to the charge of speeding.
ONLY $150 FOR MOST MACON MISSOURI ARREST WARRANTS
Once you plead guilty to a moving violation like “Excessive Speeding,” the state of Missouri will put a certain number of points
on your permanent driving record. This is a problem, because it is the existence of points on your driving record that will lead directly to much higher car insurance rates. Even one or two points will jack up those monthly premiums by as much as 35% (or possibly more, especially if you already have points that you’ve previously accrued on your record). Why would the auto insurance industry do this to you? Because from the perspective of this industry, points on someone’s driving record indicates an unwillingness to follow basic traffic law; if you don’t follow the rules of the road, there is a statistically higher chance of you ending up in an accident; in order to cover this increased risk, your car insurance provider will drastically raise your rates.
ONLY $225 FOR MOST MACON MISSOURI DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS
But there is something even more sinister about points: getting too many of them can lead to a full suspension of your driving privileges. This type of suspension will run for a year in length. During this 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 state will hit you with a criminal misdemeanor charge (which can come with potential jail time and a large fine).
And of course if you choose to do nothing, that will have it’s own consequences as well. For instance, if fail to appear at a required court hearing, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. This warrant will remain in effect until one of the following things happen: 1) you pay a large bond to the Clerk of the Court; 2) you convince the judge to recall the warrant; or 3) you are eventually arrested. We can handle warrants, but it would definitely make sense to get in touch with us right away if this is happening to you.
So what can we do for you instead? Our team will work closely with the local prosecutor to get the speeding ticket reduced from a moving violation
down to a non-moving violation (such as “Illegal Parking” or “Defective Equipment”). This is because a non-moving violation does not come with any points to your permanent driving record. And if there are no points posted to your record, then there are no worries about the above-described craziness! So please do get in touch with us as soon as possible!!
