Speeding Tickets in St. Louis
Don't Let Missouri Traffic Violations Affect You!
It is no secret that
traffic violations generate a lot of revenue for cities. Speeding tickets are by far the
most common traffic violation and many people just pay the fines as a
matter of convenience. However, if you pay a speeding ticket you are pleading
guilty to a criminal charge that will result in a conviction on your driving
record. Convictions of driving violations typically result in increased
vehicle insurance costs and may result in suspension or revocation of
your driver's license if you have previous convictions.
Don't plead guilty to a speeding ticket! An
experienced traffic law attorney can work the city prosecutor to amend the traffic ticket to a charge that
will not result in points added to your driving record. In nearly every
case, we are able to arrange for our clients to pay a fine without pleading
guilty to a moving violation.
Why Should I Fight a Speeding Ticket?
One of the major impacts of a speeding ticket is that is considered a moving
violation. Moving violations land on your driving record and can have
a drastic impact on your insurance since it indicates that you are not
a careful driver. No one deserves to be punished for a simple mistake!
Traffic tickets can have an impact in a few ways:
- Increase in insurance rates
- Prevent you from obtaining employment
- Remove your driving privileges
- Addition of points on your record
- Potential for jail time
