About – Traffic Violations

While DWI charges are among the most serious charges levied against motorists in Kansas City, penalties for a range of other traffic tickets also cause upheaval for numerous residents on both sides of the State Line. In a region built upon hundreds of miles of sprawling roads around the metro, the extreme result of cumulative traffic citations- loss of a license – really hits home and your wallet.

Lingering unpaid traffic tickets don’t go away on their own even seemingly minor citations that many people ignore. These charges stay on your record and can also throw obstacles in your path to other employment or housing down the road.

At the very least, charges typically lead to sharply higher insurance rates that become the new base rate for each renewal for at least three years, possibly five years. It’s been estimated by Insurance.com that tickets could boost your premium 6 to 22% depending upon the violation.
