How A Missouri and kansas Speeding ticket differs
Let’s say a sheriff or highway patrol pulls you over in Kansas or Missouri and gives you a traffic ticket. What happens if you receive a conviction for that violation? There’s a chance the state may suspend your driving privileges under the following conditions:
- Kansas is a moving violation state. This means that if you accumulate 3 or more moving violations in a year, the state of Kansas can suspend your license.
- Missouri is a point system state. If you have a Missouri license, and you are convicted of a moving traffic violation, between 2 to 12 points will be recorded on your driving record. If you accumulate too many points, Missouri will suspend or revoke your license. For example, 8 points in 18 months will result in a 30 day suspension or longer. Or, 12 or more points in a 12 month period will cause a one year revocation.
Your Local Traffic Attorney
With the right traffic attorney, you don’t have to worry about fighting a ticket all on your own. At Kitchin Law Firm, we bring more than 25 years of experience to every case we handle in Kansas.
As you consider how to approach handling your speeding ticket, ask yourself these questions:
- Would it be easier to avoid a case and pay the fine up front?
- Can I run the risk of having moving violations on my driver’s license?
Keep in mind, you have the choice to plea “not guilty,” which means you are siding to fight or “contest” the ticket. You can then schedule your hearing and prepare to present your case in court.
When you make the choice to plead not guilty, you’re able to fight for the dismissal of your traffic ticket, which may help you avoid paying ticket fines and getting the violation on your record — if you win.
