ONLY $35 FOR MOST O'FALLON MISSOURI SPEEDING TICKETS
Most people do not take their traffic tickets in O’Fallon Missouri (or really anywhere else in the United States) very seriously. They figure that such a thing is no big deal, and can be easily disposed of by paying a simple fine. You can certainly handle your speeding ticket in that manner, but by doing so, you will ensure that the ticket will come back to haunt you for years to come.
NO POINTS, NO INCREASED CAR INSURANCE, NO DRIVER'S LICENSE SUSPENSION!
How will it specifically come back to haunt you? Before I answer that question, let me describe how what happens when you pay the fine on your O’Fallon Missouri speeding ticket. First of all, you’ll notice that on the back of the citation the state has helpfully listed all the information you will need in order to pay the fine (what the cost is, the timeframe in which you can pay it, and the various methods to payment that they will accept). They literally could not make it any easier for you to pay the fine. So what’s the big deal? Because paying the fine on your ticket is the same thing as pleading guilty to the ticket.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
Once you have admitted guilt to the speeding ticket, the state of Missouri will put a certain number of points on your permanent driving record
. These points will greatly increase your monthly car insurance rates (by as much as 35% or more above your current premiums). When you multiple that by twelve months, and then multiply that number by three or four years, the total cost that you’ll end up incurring is quite significant. Again, all of this happens when you do nothing more than pay the fine listed on the back of your ticket.
In addition to the increased monthly cost, points can also easily lead to a full suspension of your driving privileges. This can happen when you allow too many points to accumulate on your driving record over a short period of time. And if you are subsequently caught driving on a suspended license, you’ll be facing a misdemeanor charge for Driving While Suspended. We can handle this kind of ticket as well, but it is a lot easier if we are only dealing with the speeding ticket by itself.
So as you can see, trying to take care of your Missouri traffic ticket will end up costing you quite a bit (in time, money, and stress). What can we do for you instead? Our main goal will be to get your ticket reduced from a moving violation
