Only $35 For Most Wentzville Missouri Speeding Tickets


There are two main options that are available to you when dealing with a Wentzville Missouri speeding ticket:  1) You can try and handle the ticket by yourself (without the aid of an attorney);  2) You can hire an attorney to fix the ticket for you (which would eliminate the need for you to go to court, talk to the judge, deal with the clerk, or do any work at all).  Most Americans choose Option #1 (if for no other reason than because they have no idea Option #2 even exists).  But when you decide to take care of your ticket on your own, this usually means that you’ll end up doing nothing more than paying the fine listed on the back of the citation.  However, this is the worst move you could make.


Why?  Because paying the fine on a Wentzville Missouri speeding ticket is the same thing as pleading guilty to it.  And an admission of guilt to a moving violation (such as speeding) will result in points becoming a part of your permanent driving record.  The exact number of points you’ll receive will depend on several factors (most prominently, how fast you were travelling above the posted limit).  But the real problem will the points being assessed to your driving record is what it will do to your car insurance.  


Why will points have an affect on your car insurance rates?  Because the existence of points on your record signal to the insurance industry that you do not follow the law, and people who do not follow traffic laws are more likely to get into traffic accidents.  This in turn is what they use to justify the monthly increase to your auto insurance policy.  Even one or two points will jack up your rates by 35% or more.  That’s money that could have been spent on basic household items (such as food, rent, and clothes for the kids).  

But there is one more thing about points:  they can lead to a suspension of your driver’s license.  If you were to receive a lot of points within a short period of time, the state of Missouri will automatically suspend your license for a full year (during which time it will be unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle).  And if you were to be caught driving on a suspended license, you’ll be facing not a regular traffic ticket, but rather a misdemeanor criminal charge (which comes with potential jail time and fines).  

This is a whole bunch of negativity that you certainly want to avoid!  So instead, please do get in touch with us.  Our team will work hard to get your ticket reduced from a moving violation (which is exactly what a speeding ticket is) down to a non-moving violation (such as “Illegal Parking”).  The reason we reach for this kind of outcome is because non-moving violations do not come with any points to your driving record.  And if there are no points, then there will be no worries about higher insurance or suspended licenses.  So give us a call, and we will get to work on your case right away!!
