Don’t Risk Losing Your License — And Your Freedom
If you have been cited for a traffic violation, you may think the best course of action is to pay the fine and move on. A few tickets later, however, and you could face suspended driving privileges. It is important to take proactive steps to prevent traffic offenses from resulting in a revoked license.
At Bouhasin Law Firm, we understand the complexities of Missouri traffic laws and can help you navigate traffic court with confidence. From minor infractions like parking violations, to serious charges like DWIs and vehicular manslaughter, attorney John Bouhasin is committed to providing you with aggressive representation every step of the way.
Aggressive Defense Against Missouri Moving And Non-Moving Traffic Violations
Bouhasin Law Firm has decades of experience helping Missouri drivers combat moving violations including:
- Reckless driving
- Driving with an expired/suspended license
- Running a red light
In Missouri, your vehicle does not have to be in motion for you to be ticketed by law enforcement. Without aggressive legal representation, you may also receive a fine for non-moving violations including parking in a no-parking zone, parking at an expired parking meter, or failing to display a fuel license/permit. Our team has got you covered there, too.
Not all traffic offenses are created equal. Certain traffic offenses, including evading a police officer, driving under the influence, repeated speeding, and driving without a license may be considered misdemeanors in Missouri. If you are facing serious traffic charges, it is especially important to contact an experienced traffic lawyer as soon as possible.
How Does Missouri’s Point System Work?
The consequences of a Missouri traffic violation exceed the ticket’s sticker price. Paying the ticket without first consulting an experienced traffic attorney is an acknowledgment of guilt, and will likely result in increased insurance rates and points permanently added to your license.
Accumulating 8 or more points in 18 months will result in license suspension.
- 1st suspension – 30 days
- 2nd suspension – 60 days
- 3rd or more suspensions – 90 days
Additionally, your driving privileges may be revoked for an entire year if you accumulate:
- 12 or more points in 12 months
- 18 or more points in 24 months
- 24 or more points in 36 months
With proactive planning and skilled legal representation, you may be able to avoid racking up points on your license. At Bouhasin Law Firm, we help our clients navigate point violations within the limits of St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Jefferson County, and all other municipalities therein.
