What If I Have Multiple Warrants For Unpaid Traffic Tickets?

If you have more than one active warrant for your arrest, and you are pulled over (or taken into custody by the police), you will almost certainly be arrested on the spot. And once you have served the necessary time (and/or paid the associated fine), you will most likely be transported to the next municipality that has an active warrant out for you. This will continue until you have made the rounds to each place from which a warrant has been issued.

But there is a far better way of handling multiple warrants. The experienced St. Louis speeding ticket attorneys at Brinkman & Alter, LLC can get the warrants recalled by appearing in front of the judge and pleading you case. But once the arrest warrant is recalled, there is still the matter of the underlying St. Louis traffic ticket. Our legal team will then begin negotiations with the local prosecutor to get the ticket reduced to a non-moving violation.

A non-moving violation does not come with any points. “Points” are like little red flags that make it look like you are bad driver. As you accumulate points, your automobile insurance carrier will increase your monthly premiums. In addition, if you receive a large number of points over a short period of time, you could lose your driver’s license. For instance, if you get eighteen (18) points within an eighteen month period of time, the state of Missouri will suspend your license for one year.

Driving in fear of getting pulled over because there are active warrants for your arrest is not much fun. You are constantly under the threat of jail time. But you still have to get to work, school, and the grocery store. Trying to live with multiple warrants is a big gamble, and an unnecessary risk.
