ONLY $35 FOR MOST SCOTT CITY MISSOURI TRAFFIC TICKETS
There are basically two ways to fix a traffic ticket in Scott City Missouri: 1) you can hire an experienced law firm (like us) to get that ticket fixed (so that there are no headaches in the future); 2) you could try and handle the matter on your own (and navigate the unfriendly terrain of the traffic court system). Hiring us is pretty straightforward (more on that below). But if you decide to roll the dice and represent yourself, you also know about all the potential consequences and pitfalls.
ONLY $150 FOR MOST SCOTT CITY MISSOURI ARREST WARRANTS
When our firm is retained to fix a Scott City Missouri traffic ticket, we work closely with the local prosecutor to get the moving violation (like “Excessive Speeding” or “Improper Lane Change”) reduced down to a non-moving violation
(such as “Illegal Parking” or “Defective Equipment”). We set this as our goal because non-moving violations do not come with any points to your permanent driving record. And if there is one thing you most certainly want to avoid when it comes to a traffic ticket in the state of Missouri, it is points!!
ONLY $225 FOR MOST SCOTT CITY MISSOURI DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS
So how does someone receive points on their driving record
? The only way this will occur is by pleading guilty to your traffic ticket. How does someone plead guilty? All you have to do is pay the fine listed on the back of the citation. Once this act is committed, the state of Missouri will assess a certain number of points to your record. The exact number of points will depend on a number of factors (especially how fast you were going). But it is the existence of points on your driving record that will in turn lead to much higher car insurance rates.
Even one or two points will result in an increase of about 35% above your current premiums. Why would such a thing happen because of points on your record? Because from the insurance industry’s perspective, points tend to indicate an unwillingness to obey the law. And when someone does not obey basic traffic rules, they have a statistically higher chance of getting into a traffic accident. In order to cover this increased risk, your car insurance provider will jack up your monthly rates through the roof.
One other thing about the accumulation of points on your driving record: if you get too many of them, the state will suspend your driving privileges for a full year. During this period of time, it will be unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle. And if you are caught driving on a suspended license, the state will hit you with a criminal misdemeanor charge. This is kind of charge can come with potential jail time and a large fine. And if you do nothing about your ticket, and end up missing a required court hearing, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. So please do get in touch with us as soon as possible! We will answer all your questions, and get to work on your case immediately!!
