Only $35 For Most O'Fallon Missouri Speeding Tickets
When it comes to a speeding ticket in O’Fallon Missouri, there are really only a couple of options that are available to you: 1) you can try to handle the ticket on your own; 2) you can hire an experienced O’Fallon Missouri traffic attorney to help you out. The first option leaves all of the work on your shoulders (and a tremendous amount of time that could be far better spent elsewhere). The second option is far cheaper in the long run (and way less of a headache).No Points, No Increased Car Insurance, No Worries About Losing Your License
Our system for handling O’Fallon Missouri speeding tickets (or really any other traffic ticket you might receive in the state of Missouri) is pretty straightforward: first and foremost, we do not want ticket to end up harming you long term. And believe me when I tell you, there are many ways in which a simple traffic ticket can cause quite a bit of difficulty in your life. How so? If you plead guilty to your ticket (which is exactly what most Americans do), the state will put a certain number of points on your permanent driving record. Even one or two points will jack your car insurance up through the roof. In fact, that increased cost that you will incur as a result of pleading guilty would net you a decent vacation with your family (but instead, you’ll pay out that sum of money over the next several years by way of a 35% increase to your monthly auto insurance premiums).Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option
Having said all of that, I still have had many people decide to just plead guilty and take the points. They do this because they figure that it can’t be nearly as bad as I’m making seem to be. Like I’m exaggerating the increased, long-term cost they will incur. And many of those same folks have come back to later on wishing they had taken my advice (and hire us to fix their ticket). But you’re probably thinking, “Surely these good people can understand the math involved here! Why would anyone put themselves in such a position?” Here’s why: Let’s say you’ve received speeding ticket in O’Fallon MO. You call us to find out about your options. We tell you that we can fix the ticket for $35, and then the court will assess a fine of about $225 (payable to the Clerk of the Court within thirty days). But you look at the back of the ticket, and it says that the fine is closer to $150. So you figure, it would actually be cheaper to just pay the fine than paying this lawyer!!
This is the mistake millions of Americans all around the country make (and boy do they end up regretting it). Because if you simply pay the fine listed on the back of your ticket, that is the same thing as admitting guilt to the charge. As noted above, pleading guilty will result in points becoming a part of your permanent driving record. These points will jack up your car insurance rates. And just like that, you are in the hole well over a thousand dollars in increased costs over the next several years. Unfortunately, many people only see the short term cost of paying the $150, without realizing that the long-term consequences of that decision will blow up their household budget in the near future. So it just goes to show that what appears to be the cheaper route can ultimately be deceiving.
