Traffic Ticket Categories
Traffic violations in the state of Missouri are typically categorized as either moving or non-moving violations. Examples of non-moving violations include improper muffler, failure to display a license plate, or illegal parking.
Examples of moving violations and the points they can accrue to your driving record include:
DUI – 8 points
Speeding 2 – 3 points
Rolling a stop sign – 2 points
Anytime you pay your traffic ticket online, it is a guilty admission. In addition to paying a fine, you will have points assessed on your license for the ticket. If you accrue 4 points in 12 months, you will receive a letter from the Department of Revenue advising you of that fact. If you accrue 8 points in 18 months, your license will be suspended. A first suspension is for 30 days, a second is for 60 days, and a third is for 90 days. If you accrue 12 or more points in 12 months, your license will be revoked for a year. A traffic ticket lawyer may be able to amend the ticket down to a violation without points in which case you will save your driving record from further demerits.
How Do We Fix Traffic Tickets?
We fix your ticket by getting the prosecuting attorney to amend it from a moving violation to a non-moving violation. What this means in real life is that your speeding ticket is changed to a non-points carrying violation like illegal parking or improper muffler.
By having your ticket amended to a non-moving violation, you will not receive any points on your license. Keeping your driving record clean and your insurance premiums in check. Often times, hiring the Glaesman Law Firm to fix your ticket can actually save you money in the long run.
How Much Does It Cost to Have a Traffic Ticket Fixed?
When you hire a traffic lawyer to fix your ticket, you will generally have two expenses:
the fee you pay your lawyer for fixing the ticket and
the fines and court costs are due directly to the court once your ticket is fixed.
The cost of both the lawyer and the fines/court costs may depend on the type of ticket you received, where you received it, and if there are any other extenuating circumstances that might complicate the issue. For example, if you are ticketed for going 100 mph in a 40 mph zone, the cost will be higher than if you are ticketed for going 75 mph in a 65 mph zone.
