ONLY $35 FOR MOST UNION MISSOURI SPEEDING TICKETS
One of the most important things that should be pointed out right away (when discussing a speeding ticket in Union Missouri) is that you should be as proactive as possible. This is because many people will just let ticket sit on the nightstand for several weeks, forget about their required courthouse appearance, and as a result, end up getting a warrant issued for their arrest. We can very often get a warrant recalled (so that we can address the underlying ticket), but if you ignore the warrant, eventually you’ll be arrested.
ONLY $150 FOR MOST UNION MISSOURI ARREST WARRANTS
But most Union Missouri speeding tickets do not end up in warrant status. That is because most people plead guilty to their tickets. Pleading guilty to a ticket is very easily done: all you have to do is pay the fine listed on the back of the citation, and just like that, you will have successfully admitted guilt. If you are wondering why a guilty plea on a common traffic ticket is a big deal, here is why: it will allow the state of Missouri to put points on your permanent driving record.
ONLY $225 FOR MOST UNION MISSOURI DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS
“Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver. Your auto insurance provider
will use the existence of these points to jack up your monthly rates. Why? Because from the insurance industry’s point of view, points on your driving record indicate an unwillingness to obey traffic law; people who do not follow traffic laws are more at risk of ending up in a traffic accident; in order to cover this increased risk, your provider will steeply increase your monthly premiums. How big of an increase are we talking about? Even one or two points will result in a bump of 35% (or more) above your current rates. That’s a lot of money that could go towards normal household expenses!!
But there’s one more thing about points that I’d like to make you aware of: getting too many of them (especially over a short period of time) will lead directly to a suspension of your driver’s license. This kind of suspension will last for at least a full year. During this time, it will be unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle. And if you are caught driving on a suspended license, then the state will hit you with a criminal misdemeanor charge. Again, we can usually take care of this kind of ticket too, but it is far easier to just deal with the speeding ticket by itself!!
So now for some good news! Our goal would be to get the speeding ticket (which the state describes as a “moving violation”) reduced down
to a non-moving violation (such as “Illegal Parking”). Why? Because a non-moving violation does not come with any points to your driving record. And that’s really the whole goal: to make sure that no points become a part of your record. So please do give us a call, and we will get to work on your case immediately!!
