ONLY $35 FOR MOST ST LOUIS SPEEDING TICKETS
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.
“Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver. Once points become a part of your record, the car insurance company you use will jack up your monthly rates through the roof. This increase could easily be in the neighborhood of 25-35% per month!!
If we are able to get the ticket reduced / amended, then you won’t have to worry about that cost. But the municipality itself will assess a fine (in exchange for the reduction to a non-moving violation). As you have no doubt heard on the news recently, a lot of municipalities receive a great deal of their revenue each year by way of these fines (which in turn means there is a greater incentive for the muni cops to hand out tickets like candy).
ONLY $150 FOR MOST ST LOUIS ARREST WARRANTS
But if you do not pay the associated fine within the time period set by the court, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. If that happens, you will have the extra worry of getting arrested whenever you interact with a police officer.
