Kansas City Speeding Ticket Defense Lawyer

Is it really worth it to fight your traffic ticket in Missouri? Let's consider the potential problems a traffic violation will have on your driving.

Missouri Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) operates a point system for traffic records. Each moving violation will result in a certain number of points against your driving record, which will be determined by the seriousness of your moving violation.

Reckless driving may be charged as "careless or imprudent" driving anytime the police officer feels your speed and erratic driving behavior put the public in excessive danger. The number of points for reckless driving may increase to four points.

Accumulating 12 points over the course of any continuous 12-month period may result in a suspended license.

You may be thinking that a single ticket on your record won't matter that much. If you have a good driving record and are confident you will not receive another moving violation over the next year, you will probably be better off paying the fine. But remember, paying the fine is the same thing as pleading guilty to a criminal offense. It will remain on your record.

Having a speeding ticket on your record can also have a big financial impact on your auto insurance rates. If your insurance company checks, you will probably face an increase in premiums that can last for several years. If you are thinking of changing insurance companies, they will check your record before selling you a policy. Some car insurance companies won't take you on as a policyholder. The ones that do will charge you an increased premium because you are considered a risky driver.
