You may not realize just how serious an undefended traffic ticket can be. Traffic violations will potentially affect more than just an increase in your insurance premium; they could result in you losing your license, paying large fines, or even jail time. If you have recently received a traffic ticket/traffic tickets, been involved in an accident, or suffered in a more serious traffic incident, it is time to consult with an attorney who is experienced in traffic law and litigation.

The best way to protect your driver’s license if you have received traffic violations is to fight your citation in municipal court. We will provide you with the strongest defense against all violations charged. Please know that with a proper defense it is sometimes possible to negotiate a guilty plea to an alternative charge that will carry fewer or possibly no points against your license.

The Missouri Drivers Points System

In the state of Missouri, most moving violations, traffic citations, and motor vehicle-related offenses are assigned a given number of points.  If a driver accumulates too many points on their driving record within a given period of time, their driver’s license will be suspended or revoked.

The points earned against your driver’s license will vary with the seriousness of the offense. Below you will see some examples of the Missouri Drivers points system:

1 point:  A municipal stop sign violation that does not result in an accident
3 points: A state speeding violation
8 points: For a first-time DWI/DUI
12 points: Leaving an accident scene in violation of state law
Repeat drunk driving
Felonies involving the use of a motor vehicle
  • Eight points within any 18-month period will result in a 30-day suspension.
  • Twelve points within any 12-month period will result in a one-year revocation.
