Combating The Penalties From Your Driving Ticket

The point system associated with a Missouri driver's license is pretty straight forward. Every moving violation and some non-moving violations resulting in a conviction is worth a certain number of points, and if drivers accumulate too many points within a certain period of time, their license may be suspended or revoked. Fortunately, traffic attorneys at the Lake of the Ozarks may be able to help drivers reduce or avoid these undesirable consequences.


Criminal Acts on the Road


Missouri's point system works to track each driver's illegal transgressions. Many of the things most people think of as simply "bad driving" are actually considered criminal acts in the eyes of the law. The following are all examples of criminal acts that Missouri drivers commit almost every single day:
  • Driving Without A License
  • Driving Without Insurance
  • Careless and Imprudent Driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving While Intoxicated

With our experience in criminal defense and Missouri's traffic law, O'Donnell Law Center may be able to help reduce the penalties associated with these types of charges. 

Reducing The Penalties


Depending on your specific situation, your Missouri traffic attorney may be able to obtain a reduced charge or facilitate an amendment of the charge from a moving violation to a non-moving violation that does not carry points. Your attorney can help you evaluate your situation and determine how best to proceed.

If you have received a ticket for a traffic violation, contact our traffic attorney in Osage Beach, MO. While simply paying your ticket may seem like the easiest solution in the moment, it may not be the most cost-effective in the long run. Once you pay your ticket, you are admitting guilt, receiving a conviction, and setting yourself up for points to be assessed to your driver's license which could result in a revoked or suspended licenses and increased auto insurance costs. If you are looking for a traffic attorney, contact the team at our Lake of the Ozarks law firm for the representation you need.
