Believe it or not, that Wentzville Missouri traffic ticket you just received can cause you major headaches if it is not handled properly. Points on your driving record, higher car insurance, potential driver’s license suspension, and in some cases, the loss of a job.

Those are hefty consequences for a seemingly insignificant Wentzville MO speeding ticket!

Unfortunately, the vast majority of people do not take these matters seriously, and they end up suffering from one (or several) of the above-mentioned negative outcomes. But this does not have to happen to you. There is a much better option available. And it starts the moment you give The People’s Counsel a call! 

We will get your Wentzville MO traffic ticket fixed quickly so that no points go on your driving record 

The steps we follow in order to fix your Wentzville Missouri traffic ticket are straightforward:  1) We will get all the information about your ticket we need (such as the ticket number, the date and time of your court date, your date of birth, etc.);  2) We will then notify the court and prosecutor that we are representing you on the ticket (which will effectively end any further communication between you and the court);  3) We move immediately into a negotiation with the local prosecutor to get your Wentzville MO speeding ticket reduced from a moving violation to a non-moving violation; 4) Once we have the prosecutor’s recommendation (which will indicate the amended charge and new fine), we will mail / email this document to you. 

This process usually costs a relatively low amount in attorney fees (assuming that your ticket is run-of-the-mill). If your ticket requires an appearance by our Wentzville MO traffic ticket attorney, then the fees will increase according to the level of work we’ll need to perform. 

Our experienced Wentzville Missouri speeding ticket lawyer will make sure your auto insurance does not go up 

But once your Wentzville MO speeding ticket is reduced to a non-moving violation, you won’t have to worry about any points going on your permanent driving record. Why? Because non-moving violations (such as Illegal Parking, so-called because the infraction occurred when the vehicle was not in motion) do not carry any points. It is the existence of points on your driving record that will lead directly to much higher car insurance rates (and possibly a suspension of your driving privileges). 

Why do points lead to higher car insurance bills? Think of points on your driving record the same way you would think of an “F” on your final exam. It just doesn’t look good, and it can hurt your future prospects. Once your automobile insurance provider sees the points on your record, it will raise your monthly premiums. The reason for this increase is because, from the industry’s perspective, if you have points on your record, you are the type of driver who does not follow the rules of the road. A driver who does not follow traffic law is the type of driver who is at a statistically higher risk of getting into a car accident. In order to cover this increased risk, the insurance industry will raise your monthly rates. 


How big of an increase to your auto insurance should you expect? Let’s say you receive two (2) points for speeding 10-15 miles over the posted limit. Even a couple of points like this will easily lead to an increase of about 35% above your current rates. So if your current car insurance is $150 per month (which is close to the national average), a 35% increase would be an extra $52.50 per month. This may not seem like a lot on paper. But just image paying out this extra amount, month after month, for the next thirty-six (36) months. Because it will last at least three (3) years, and at the end of this period of time, you will have shelled out nearly an extra $2,000 to your auto insurance provider. That is an incredible amount of money that could have gone to necessary household items, like food or rent. 

There is also a potential that you’ll lose your driving privileges altogether from accumulating too many points on your driving record. This can happen, for example, if you were to receive eight (8) points within a span of eighteen (18) months. When this occurs, the state of Missouri will suspend your driver’s license for thirty (30) days. Just think of having to catch rides from friends and family for that long.

But none of this needs to happen! You can contact The People’s Counsel by phone, email, or filling out an online form. Either way, we will get to work on your case immediately. We look forward to hearing from you!
