I have an Iowa CDL and the violation occurred in Hannibal, Mo. I was able to see the video online and I did indeed run the red light, but since it was so long ago I don’t really remember doing it or what the driving/traffic conditions were like at the time. Since I was driving a heavy tractor... Read more »
Yes, you can hire an attorney to get your Hannibal red light camera ticket amended from a 2-point moving violation to a no-point, no-moving infraction such as "Equipment Violation" or, for truck drivers with a CDL, the ticket can be amended to "Parking a Truck Longer Than 4 Hours."
If the court date is June 19, then that's when payment is due. If you hire a traffic ticket lawyer to get your tickets reduced to non-moving, no-point infractions, your attorney will get the court date continued to a later date.
If you plead guilty to a speeding ticket, points will be added to your driving record, and your car insurance rates may increase.

I have a MO license but I have 2 received speeding tickets in Illinois and one in Iowa in the past year. I didn't realize out of state tickets counted towards points on your license so I just paid the fine and didn't get them fixed. Can I still have an attorney get them off my record or is it too...

It's possible that an attorney in IL or Iowa could withdraw your guilty plea and get your tickets amended to a non-moving violation. You will need to hire a traffic ticket lawyer in the state (and preferably in that particular county or city) where you got the tickets. It's more difficult to...Read more »
I received a ticket for a 72 in a 55 mph in Franklin County, MO but the officer never asked me to sign my ticket? EVERY ticket I have received in the last 10 years have asked me to sign. I feel like he basically told me I was guilty, explained nothing about the ticket or anything really. Can I get... Read more »
No, this is not sufficient to get the ticket dismissed. It does not matter that you didn't sign the ticket. You can hire a traffic law attorney to get your ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point violation so nothing will show up on your driving record and your car insurance rates won't increase.
The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges, if it's a misdemeanor such as marijuana possession. It can take several months to receive the lab test results confirming the identification of the illegal substance.
A few days ago I was driving yes speeding I didn't know I passed a cop but I turned down a gravel road and I noticed there was 2 cars following me pretty fast so I took the next right and was still driving then I seen the light of the police and pulled over... He let me go but I got a ticket with... Read more »
When you go to court, the judge will ask if you are pleading guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty, the judge will sentence you and assess the fine & court costs. 3 points will be added to your driving record and your car insurance rates may increase as a result.
The ticket has still not been filed with the courts. I have been checking Missouri Case net and called but no one has seen it. Does anyone know what the average fine is for a C&I? I live a decent distance away and want to get it paid so I don’t have to come back for court.
For a Careless & Imprudent Driving ticket, it's usually a mandatory court appearance. That's why there is no fine amount listed on the ticket. If you want to plead guilty as charged, you have to go to court on your court date and the judge will determine the amount of the fine.
The cost of the fine depends on which court it's in and how bad your driving record is. If you want to plead guilty and pay the fine, you have to go to court and plead guilty to the judge, who will assess the amount of the fine, and points will be added to your driving record (and your car...Read more »

I did not yield to an ambulance in Missouri's outer road. It was snowing and I was afraid of sliding and hitting the ambulance so I did not stop. I am sure I will get a ticket in the mail (St. Charles county court said $180 fine) but I want to know if jail time or license revoking is standard with... Read more »
It just depends on the details of the case, your criminal history, your driving record, whether anyone was injured, whether your vehicle was insured, which court your case is being prosecuted in, etc. If you want to get this traffic ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction, you will have...Read more »
I'm not an adult (junior in highschool) had liscence, insurance and have never had any type of infraction on my record. Completely clean. I'm just a bit worried as to what could happen because I got a court date rather than just a fine.
The outcome of your case depends a lot on which court your case is being prosecuted in. Some prosecutors and judges are more lenient than others. You (or your parents) will need to hire an experienced criminal defense/traffic law attorney to...Read more »
I was pulled over going 5-10mph over in a 60mph zone. The Highway Patrol officer didn’t issue a ticket and just gave me advice, but he has my home address. Can my ticket be sent in the mail even though he never said he was giving me one?
The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges against you. So yes, it is possible that you could receive a ticket in the mail later. However, it sounds like the officer just gave you a warning and let you go.
Usually that means you can get the problem fixed (repair the broken tail-light, for example) and bring proof to court and show the judge, who might dismiss the ticket or reduce the fine. "Fix-it" tickets are usually for non-moving, no-point violations like "Failure to Register Vehicle" or...Read more »
