St Louis Traffic Tickets: Why Can’t I Just Plead Guilty To My Speeding Ticket?


You certainly can plead guilty to the St Louis traffic ticket that you’ve received (and that will take care of the ticket forever). But if you choose this path, then you will end up paying for that same ticket many times over in the future!! Why? A brief description follows:

When you plead guilty to a speeding ticket in the St Louis area, then the state of Missouri will assess “points” to your permanent driving record. Points are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver.

If there are points on your record, then your automobile insurance provider will use that as an excuse to jack up your monthly rates. This could easily result in an increase of up to 35% higher monthly premiums. And if you get too many points (especially over a short period of time), then the state can actually suspend your driving privileges up to a full year.

But it doesn’t have to go this way!! We can get a much better deal for you! Our goal would be to get the ticket reduced to a non-moving violation. A non-moving violation does not come with any points attached to your record.


So for instance, if you have received a St Louis speeding ticket, it will come with at least two (2) points if you plead guilty. But if you hire us to get the ticket fixed, then we would try to get it amended to a non-moving violation, like Excessive Vehicle Noise (which is an infraction that does not come with any points).

All you have to do is give us a call!! We will answer all of your questions, fully describe your range of options, and help guide you through the process step by step!!!
