St Louis Speeding Ticket Defense: How Do I Keep Points Off My Record?


There are two ways to keep points from going onto your permanent driving record in the state of Missouri: 1) get the ticket thrown out; 2) get the St Louis speeding ticket reduced to a non-moving violation. And the best way to accomplish either of these tasks is to hire a good attorney!!

“Points” are like little red flags that the state places on your driving record to indicate what your driving history has been like. The more points you have, the more it gives the impression that you are a “bad driver.” What are some of the consequences of points on your record:

  • higher automobile insurance premiums (because the insurance industry is constantly looking for ways to either jack up your rates, or cut you from their policy altogether)
  • higher and higher fees paid to the court
  • and if you get too many points over a short period of time, then the state can suspend your driving privileges for up to a full year

Most people do not want to deal with these consequences. Instead, they would much rather avoid points altogether. If you hire an experienced St. Louis traffic ticket lawyer, he or she can work closely with the local prosecutor to get the moving violation you are currently charged with (like speeding) reduced to a non-moving violation (which is an infraction that does not show up on your record at all). And if the ticket is reduced in this manner, then no points will appear anywhere.
