Speeding Tickets In Missouri
Everyone gets into trouble now and then, planned or unplanned, that is the beauty of life, that aspect of uncertainty, which surrounds our day-to-day activities. Driving is one aspect we can’t get to avoid, mainly because of how much and how often it intertwines with our activities, be it work, school, vacation, emergencies and so on.
It is often a jaw dropping experience when law enforcement official confronts one, be you a motorist or another road user, indicating that you have violated a traffic law. It immediately gets you worried… but you need not be because our traffic attorney can help you get out of this mess.
There are mainly two modes in which traffic tickets are issued; it may be citing a moving violation such as exceeding the speed limits or a non-moving violation such as parking violation. The tickets are mostly referred to as parking citation or parking tickets.
Some traffic tickets require that a notice of a penalty such as a fine or a deduction in points be assessed against a driver or owner of a vehicle; and failure to pay this generally leads to prosecution or to a civil recovery proceeding for a fine. In other jurisdictions, a citation constitutes summons to appear at a traffic court, with a determination of guilt to be made only by that court.
The violations, which could earn you a citation in Missouri
Now that we are aware of how a speeding ticket is issued, it’d be important to be aware of what you do that would earn you such a ticket also how it is calculated and most especially, what you can do about it.
How much is a speeding ticket
They generally vary upon how fast the driver is clocked within a certain traffic zone. It is definitely no secret as to how expensive it could be.
An aggravating aspect of this would be when you are caught in a construction zone, especially if workers are present. You and I are human, so ask yourself right now where you fall within the above-illustrated range. It is of common parlance that once you identify your problem, that accounts half of the solution.
Speeding Ticket Misdemeanor
Missouri “Nolo Publisher” labels a class B misdameanor as a basic speeding law offence, while absolute speed violations are considered class C misdemeanors.
It goes without saying that if these misdemeanors are not properly handled, they could result in expensive fines and potential jail time. This mainly ties with situations wherein you finally find yourself in court as a result of a citation.
- How Many Points are Speeding Tickets
Isn’t it amazing how our driver’s licences are being regulated? In Missouri, speeding violations account for 3 points on your personal driving record. If you convicted for a speeding violation in a municipal area, then 2 points would be added to your drivers licence. One reason why you ought to be cautious is … once you accumulate 4 points in a 12-month timeframe; you are eligible for an advisory letter from the Missouri Department of Revenue.
Now what happens when a speeding ticket isn’t paid
Two things are involved when you are issued a speeding ticket; it is either you comply and pay it, or you contest and don’t.
If you contest however, please be diligent enough to know how you contest because it may simply aggravate the situation and cause your even more pain. For example;
- You could be issued a warrant of arrest
- Suspension of your licence
- Heavier car insurance cost
- More fines and points on your record
However, there are times going to court and pleading guilty, the judge could reduce your fine. Suffix it to say our lawyer would make use of old fashion ways and add a personal touch to whatever traffic issue you may have… you are assured of the best to get you out of this mess.
Speeding tickets on your record
Generally if they are not contested and reduced, the violations would stick on your record. Also if your ticket is paid off, the traffic offense will remain on your Missouri Driving record for up to 3 years at least.
Suspension as a result of speeding tickets
It’s just a matter of logic; more speeding tickets usually means that more points will stick to your driving record. Considering that you accumulate 8 or more points within 18 months, your licence will be suspended for 30 days. A second suspension will last for 60 days, and a third lasts 90 days. When 12 or more points are pinned to your record in 24 months, you will lose your driver’s licence for one year.

Basic Missouri Speeding Laws
The basic law requires all motorists to drive “at a rate of speed so as not to endanger the property of another or the life or limb of any person.” In other words, motorists must always drive at a safe speed. This appeals to the motorists’ discretions.
On the other hand, the absolute laws stipulate specific limits: 70 miles per hour on rural interstates and freeways; 65 miles per hour on rural expressways; and 60 miles per hour on interstate highways, freeways, and express in urban areas.
A violation of Missouri’s basic speeding law is a Class B Misdemeanor. Violating an absolute speed limit is generally a Class C Misdemeanor.
