St Louis Traffic Tickets $35: What Happens If I Am Involved In A Traffic Accident And I Receive A Ticket?


If you receive a St Louis traffic ticket when you are involved in an accident, then it is probably a “Following Too Close” infraction. This would especially be the case if you were found to be at fault for the accident. Below is more information related to this type of situation:

In a normal traffic ticket scenario, our main goal would be to get the ticket reduced from a moving violation down to a non-moving violation. This is a desirable outcome, because a non-moving violation does not come with any points on your permanent driving record. “Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver. It is the existence of points on your record that leads to a dramatic increase in your monthly car insurance rates.

But that’s assuming no accident was involved. That changes things quite a bit. Let’s use the example given above of “Following Too Close”. If an accident was involved, then the prosecutor is going to want to see some sort of documentation from your automobile insurance provider stating that the accident and/or insurance claim has been (or will be) covered (and that your policy will be taking care of the cost of the damage to the other vehicle).


This could just be a simple letter (on the car insurance provider’s letterhead). Your attorney can then present that letter as evidence to the prosecutor. This in turn will lead to a much greater chance of getting your ticket reduced to a non-moving violation!!
