St Louis Speeding Tickets: Will There Be A Fine Even If I Get My Ticket “Fixed”?


Yes, there will be a fine that the municipality (or county) will assess if the prosecutor gives a recommendation to the court on your ticket. A “recommendation” is basically the prosecutor’s way of saying that he/she believes that the ticket should be reduced to a lesser infraction (like a non-moving violation). But the way that the municipality makes any money is by requiring that you pay a fine.

How much is will the fine be? Usually it is in the $100 to $200 range.

Would it be cheaper to just pay the fine that is listed on the ticket (instead of hiring an attorney to get the ticket fixed)? Not in the long run. Because if you simply pay the fine listed on the St Louis speeding ticket, then you are pleading guilty to the charge. If you plead guilty, then the state of Missouri will assess a certain number of points to your permanent record.

If points are on your record, then your automobile insurance company will jack up your monthly rates through the roof.


How much will your car insurance rise if you get points? According to a recent study, three (3) points on your record will result in a 22% increase in your monthly insurance costs; and the next ticket you get after that will result in a 53% increase.

So as you can see, it is far cheaper to hire us for $35, and then pay the fine that the court requires you to pay after the ticket gets reduced to a non-moving violation (as noted above, that fine is usually between $100-$200).
