Legal Answers
Q. Can a court enter a plea of guilty for you, if you fail to appear for a traffic violation?
A: In general no a plea cannot be entered for you. <a href=""></a> <a href="">Speedingticketkc twitterfeed</a> <a href="">Facebook Page</a> <a href="">Google Plus</a>
Q. Is a vehicle considered as derelict because you haven't gotten it tagged
A: I honestly have never heard of a derelict vehicle but I have heard of a citation for an unregistered one. Whether your vehicle is on the road or not, you need to have it registered as soon as possible in order to stop receiving further citations.
Q. Do I need a lawyer for a speeding violation in Lyon County, going 26 MPH over the 70 MPH speed limit? I live in MO.
A: Assuming this is your only offense and you are a non-cdl driver, no you will not lose your license. Do you need to get an attorney, Yes I recommend getting an attorney and getting your ticket amended to a non-moving violation. In Missouri they department of revenue adds points to your record and if you get enough your license can be suspended. Insurance companies will check your driving record when you renew or look for new insurance. Because you got a speeding ticket, they will raise your rates because they will assume you are a riskier driver. The amendment process is quite easy and costs generally between $150-$300 in fines and I charge a flat fee of $75 a ticket. Get a lawyer and get this taken care of.
