St Louis Traffic Tickets: Is A Driving While Suspended Ticket Worse Than A Regular Infraction?


Yes, it most certainly is. And it should not be handled lightly. In fact, many jurisdictions within the state of Missouri consider it to be a misdemeanor (and therefore way worse than a common traffic ticket). And if you were to plead guilty to this kind of ticket, then you would automatically receive twelve (12) points to your permanent driving record.

If you get a Driving While Suspended ticket in St Louis, then obviously you were caught operating an automobile without a valid license (because if your license was at some point in the past suspended, then the license you currently have is invalid). But in order to have this kind of ticket handled by a St Louis traffic ticket lawyer, you will need to first figure out why it is that your license is in fact suspended.

Some people know right away why their license is no longer valid. Perhaps they missed a court date, which lead to a Failure to Appear and a warrant issued for their arrest). Or maybe they had received too many points in a short period of time, and the state automatically suspended their driving privileges.

Regardless of the reason for why it was suspended, the main question at this point is going to be simple: what is necessary in order to bring the license current? If it is a matter of allowing a certain period of time to lapse (like your license was suspended because of too many points), then it is simply a waiting game until that period is up. But if it is necessary to get your license back to valid status depends on the cooperation of other municipalities within the St Louis area, then things get a little more complicated.
