Need a Kansas City Traffic Lawyer in Kansas or Missouri?
You should hire an experienced Kansas City traffic attorney, as traffic violations are a very serious matter that can involve significant fines, increases to your car insurance rates, and in certain cases, include jail time and a permanent criminal record. Being charged with a moving violation causes a driver to accumulate harmful points or moving violations against their record. When too many points or moving violations accumulate, drivers face the possible suspension of revocation of their driver’s license. Our Kansas City traffic lawyer works to have these types of tickets amended from point-incurring moving violations to non-moving violations that do not involve harmful points or threaten a person’s driving privilege.
Many cases can best be resolved through plea bargaining and negotiation. However, in other cases, going to trial may be the best option. At kcticketlaw, we thoroughly investigate your case to build the most successful and compelling defense for your individual case. The results that we get you in could mean the difference between keeping and losing your job, money, reputation and future.
In Missouri, if you are guilty of speeding or many of the offenses above, you will incur “points” against your license. The Missouri Department of Revenue’s MODOR Website provides an overview of the points system for various tickets.
Kansas is a “moving violation” state, which means that if you receive 3 moving violations in a year, your license will be suspended. It also has a “habitual violator” statute that provides much harsher penalties for serious traffic offenses. See the Kansas Highway Patrol Website for more information on how these moving violations can affect your license.
In additon to points or moving violations being added to your license, failure to pay your fine in a timely manner, or failure to appear at court for traffic offenses will oftentimes result in the issuance of an arrest warrant.
