Why Is My Auto Insurance Affected By A Kansas City MO Traffic Ticket?


The reason why your Kansas City MO speeding ticket could lead to higher auto insurance is because of the “Points System” that the state of Missouri employs for traffic matters.  “Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver.  As soon as points go on to your permanent driving record, your car insurance provider will waste little time jacking up your monthly premiums!!


So how do points become a part of your record in the first place?  The only way this can happen is if you plead guilty to a Kansas City MO traffic ticket.  With a plea of guilt, the state will assess a certain number of points to your record (for example, a simple speeding ticket will generally come with two (2) points).  But even this low number of points can substantially impact your car insurance.  Depending on your prior record and who you use for your coverage, your rates can easily jump to by 35%!!


This brings us to the next logical question that you are probably asking right now:  How do someone plead guilty to a Kansas City MO traffic ticket?  That is easy and straightforward.  All you have to do in order to plead guilty to the traffic infraction is simply pay the associated fine listed on the back of the ticket.  That single act is all you need to do in order to plead guilty (and thereafter amass points on your record).  Unfortunately, most people do not realize this is the case.  Because most folks presume that a traffic is “no big deal”.  But nothing could be further from the truth!!

Would you rather avoid all this nonsense?  Would you rather avoid an increase to your car insurance?  If so, then you should give us a call right away!  Our goal is simple:  we want to get the ticket reduced from a moving violation down to a non-moving violation.  A non-moving violation does not come with any points to your driving record.  No points, no increase of your auto insurance rates.  It’s just that simple!!

So give us a call, shoot us a text, send us an email, or fill out an online form.  We will get all the necessary information we need, and take it from there!!  But one word of caution:  waiting around to get in touch with us could result in a warrant for your arrest.  This can occur if you miss a required court hearing.  So in order to avoid such a thing, please do reach out to us well before the court date listed on your Kansas City MO speeding ticket!
