ONLY $35 FOR MOST ST LOUIS SPEEDING TICKETS!!

Yes, you most certainly can!! A straightforward St Louis speeding ticket (that for all intents and purposes should be taken care of with relative ease) can absolutely turn into a nightmare for you! But the good news is that this kind of situation can be handled by our office with no problem! Below is a fuller description:

How does someone end up going to jail from a simple traffic ticket? Easy. All you have to do is ignore the ticket (don’t hire an attorney, don’t attend the required court hearing), and the judge will order a warrant for your arrest. Once the warrant is active, you could be hauled off at any moment (especially if you are pulled over for a routine traffic offense in the future).

ONLY $35 FOR ST LOUIS SPEEDING TICKETS!!

When you plead guilty to a St Louis traffic ticket, the state of Missouri will automatically assess points to your permanent driving record. This is bad because “points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are not a good driver. It is the existence of points on your record that will result in your car insurance exploding.

Instead of pleading guilty to the ticket, we would rather get the citation reduced from a moving violation (like “excessive speeding”) down to a non-moving violation (like “illegal parking”). The reason why we make this our goal is because a non-moving violation does not come with any points (and if you don’t have to worry about the points, then you don’t have to worry about rising auto insurance premiums)!!

Yes, that is a possibility in some jurisdictions. The idea behind this policy is pretty simple: the court figures there is a greater chance of you not driving so fast in the future if the punishment this time involves some sort of jail time. Usually this is described by the court as “shock time,” and it lasts for a couple of days (like no more than 48 hours, and it can normally be served over the weekend so that it doesn’t interfere with your job). But a good St Louis speeding ticket can keep this kind of penalty to a minimum! Below is a more thorough description:

Let’s say you are caught going 92 miles per hour in a 55mph speed zone. This would of course mean that you were travelling 37 miles over the speed limit. In most municipalities and counties, the local prosecutors will not provide a recommendation to the judge (to reduce the ticket to a non-moving violation so that you do not receive any points to your permanent driving record) because of a local rule or policy.

Because pleading guilty to a St Louis speeding or traffic ticket will allow the Missouri Department of Revenue to assess a certain number of points to your permanent driving record. Once points go on your driving record, then your auto insurance provider will jack up your rates (through the roof). Why? Because points on your record makes it appear as if you are a bad driver (and the insurance folks will use this as their excuse to increase your premiums).

In addition, too many points on your record can easily result in a suspension of your driving privileges altogether. This suspension can last up to a full year. And of course if you are caught operating a motor vehicle during this period of time, then you will be cited with a St Louis Driving While Suspended ticket.

ONLY $150 TO HANDLE MOST ST LOUIS ARREST WARRANTS

If the court has assessed a fine in regards to your St Louis traffic ticket, then you will typically have thirty (30) to sixty (60) days to pay it off. If, however, you do not get the fines paid by this deadline (or if you have not set up any sort of payment plan with the clerk), then chances are the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. But even if it gets to that point, a good attorney can help you out! A more thorough description is given below:

When you hire an experienced St Louis speeding ticket attorney to help you get your ticket reduced to a non-moving violation (so that you do not receive any points to your permanent driving record), the court will usually assess a fine of between $100 – $200. As mentioned above, the court will normally allow you a sufficient period of time in which to pay this fine (and even work out a payment plan if you need additional time).

Then each ticket will have to be dealt with individually (within its respective municipality). Why? Because St Louis has a system of government in which each muni has its own police force, courts, and set of rules governing how tickets are handled. This means that you will need a law firm that is familiar with each one (and preferably one that is on a first-name basis with the court clerks!!) As luck would have it, you have successfully found that law firm!! A fuller description is given below:

Let’s say you have a speeding ticket in St Louis City, a lane change violation in Berkeley MO, and another speeding ticket in Bel-Nor MO. All three of these municipalities not only has their own judges, prosecutors, and police; each of these muni’s handles traffic tickets differently!!

Some muni’s will allow an attorney to do all his/her work via fax or email; some will only allow the ticket to be handled by making the attorney personally appear (as is the case in St Louis City), and others will only allow the attorney to do his business by way of regular mail.

There are a couple of instances in which a St Louis speeding ticket will go to warrant: 1) when you fail to appear at one of the hearings set by the court; 2) if you fail to pay your fine within the timeframe allotted by the court. A fuller description of this process is given below:

When a St Louis traffic ticket is issue by a police officer, this ticket will provide you with information as to the court date, time, and location (usually about thirty (30) days after the ticket is issued). If you do not make it to the court date (or you forget about it, or you lose the ticket, or you say the hell with it), then the judge will automatically issue a warrant for your arrest from the bench (the so-called “bench warrant”).

Once the ticket is in warrant, then the only way to get out of it is to bond out (or hire an attorney to help get you out from underneath it). But the ticket will still need to be dealt with (which is exactly why it is such a good idea to retain the services of a good St Louis speeding ticket lawyer). If you bond out, that means you pay a certain sum of money to the court to get yourself out of jail.

There is almost always a fine that the municipality assesses after the ticket is reduced to a non-moving violation. This fine is normally in the $100 – $200 range. And the muni will give you plenty of time to pay it (anywhere from one to two months, and sometimes more; and often times, the muni will allow you to do a payment plan over the course of several months). A more thorough explanation is given below:

When a traffic ticket is issued, the best course of action to handle it is by getting in touch with a good St Louis speeding ticket lawyer. For instance, our firm would seek to have the ticket reduced from a moving violation (like a speeding ticket) down to a non-moving violation like illegal parking). A non-moving violation does not come with any points to your permanent driving record.

If your St Louis traffic tickets are quite old, then there is a good likelihood that the ticket has gone to warrant status. If that is the case, then the police can take you into custody once they run your name through their database. But there is a way to handle warrants (and the old tickets associated with them). A description of how is provided below:

When a police officer writes out a ticket for a traffic infraction, the copy that you receive will provide you with all the information you need to know about the charge. One of the pieces of information provided is the court date and time on which the matter will be heard. But if you do not attend this designated hearing (or if you do not hire an attorney to attend the hearing for you), then the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest from the bench.

Getting points from a St Louis traffic ticket on your permanent driving record is bad for a number of reasons. Namely, it is the existence of points that will cause your automobile insurance to go through the roof. And if you get too many points (over a short period of time), you can actually lose your driving privileges altogether!!

If you plead guilty to a traffic or speeding ticket in the St Louis area, the that will allow the state of Missouri to assess a certain number of points to your record. “Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver (and the more points you accrue, the worse it looks). In response to the points you receive, your car insurance company will jack up your monthly rates (by as much as 35%)!!
