Difference Between a Moving and Non-Moving Violation in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS SPEEDING TICKETS FOR $35

When you receive a St. Louis traffic ticket from a police officer (or some person with the authority to write a ticket), the violation is going to be classified as one of two things:  moving, or non-moving.  If it is a moving violation, then that means you committed an infraction of law that involved you operating a moving vehicle.  The classic example would be driving in excess of the posted speed limit (i.e. speeding).

A non-moving violation is when you have infracted the law, but the violation was not committed during the operation of a moving vehicle.  A good example of this would be illegally parking your car somewhere.  In essence, the violation resulted after you stopped driving.

This is the fundamental difference between the two forms of violations.  But the differences do not stop there.  There are certain implications for each type that you should be aware of, because it can have a tremendous effect on your future driving record.  For instance, pleading guilty to a moving violation will put “points” on your record.  Points are negative marks that are assessed against you every time you are found to have violated the traffic laws.  As these points accumulate, your automobile insurance will rise, and you will risk getting your driver’s license suspended or revoked. 

A non-moving violation does not put points on your record (and thus no need to worry about your insurance and/or ability to drive freely).  So how do you turn a moving violation into a non-moving violation?  By hiring an experienced law firm that has the knowledge and skill to make this happen.  The affordable St. Louis traffic and speeding ticket defense lawyers at Brinkman & Alter, LLC have been getting St. Louis tickets reduced to lesser charges for years.  We make sure that our clients’ records are clean and clear of all points so that you do not have to worry about higher monthly expenses.  Once we take over your case, you will not have to attend court, or deal with the prosecutor, or even have to write a statement.  Most of the information that we require can be retrieved over the phone, or you may simply fill out our online form.  Contact us today to learn more!
