Kansas City Lawyer To Help Fight Speeding Tickets

Nearly every driver in the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area will eventually get a speeding ticket. Most people know when they were caught speeding or driving recklessly and don’t have a leg to stand on when issued the citation. There is a temptation to just pay the fine and be more careful. This is usually a mistake.

Even one violation on your record can have a costly impact on your insurance premiums. If you have been stopped multiple times over the past few years, you face a serious penalty, including possibly losing your license to suspension. I can usually take care of those tickets by plea bargain. Your record can be kept clean at a reasonable price. And if you have good reason to fight the ticket, I will fight aggressively.

Speeding carries a wide range of penalties depending on a driver’s prior record and how far over the speed limit they were. These penalties range from a warning to multiple points on a driver’s license. Drivers should understand that speeding penalties are up for debate in a court of law and that drivers shouldn’t simply pay the fine without discussing their options with an experienced legal counsel.

Careless Driving

Careless or reckless driving is a subjective offense that can encompass a wide range of activities, including accidental and intentional. In general, careless driving is defined as any activity that represents a disregard for the rules of the road or the other people and vehicles on the road. Because of the subjective nature of the offense, the citation and the penalties associated with the citation are up for discussion in a court of law.
