Hancock Law Firm Knows How to Fight for the Rights of Drivers
Almost every motorist has been pulled over at some point in their life. No matter how good a driver you are, it’s basically inevitable that you are going to make a few minor mistakes. When this happens, there is a good chance you are going to be issued a ticket. However, police officers are too often prone to writing traffic tickets for arbitrary reasons, or unfairly targeting individuals based on obscure, random, and unfair justifications.
While you may think the best way to take care of a traffic ticket is to simply pay it and then move on with your life, this is not necessarily the case. The infraction stemming from that ticket can linger on your driving record, leading to points on your license. This in turn can make it difficult when it comes time to renew your license, or when it comes to getting and holding on to your commercial driver’s license. In a worst case scenario, if you have more than one tickets, you could end up having your licensed revoked altogether. This is to say nothing of your auto insurance, which is likely to skyrocket with every new set of points that goes on your driving record.
If you want to keep your auto insurance rates low and protect your right to the road, make sure to call a skilled Rankin County traffic lawyer at Hancock Law Firm as soon as possible. We offer seasoned legal counsel for a range of traffic offenses, and promise to work as hard as possible to ensure you can hold on to your license and avoid paying steep fines.

When Should I Hire a Traffic Offense Lawyer
The unfortunate fact of the matter is that when it comes to moving violations, there are literally hundreds of infractions that you can receive a traffic citation for. Each subsequent violation you are charged with will carry a varying set of points on your driving record, which will remain there for any number of years—depending on whether you choose to fight your ticket or not. For instance, a speeding offense will generally result in two points being put on your license. However, if you get caught speeding on an interstate highway, the Highway Patrol may dock you three points. Driving without proof of insurance or financial responsibility will generally cost you four points, but if this occurs while you are involved in a traffic accident, you will lose an additional two points as well.
In the state of Missouri:
- Receiving eight points in 18 months may result in a 30 day driving suspension
- Receiving 16 points in 18 months may result in a 60 day driving suspension
- Receiving 24 points in 18 months may result in a 90 day driving suspension
- Receiving 12 points in 12 months will result in a driver’s license suspension
- Receiving 18 points in 24 months will result in a driver’s license suspension
- Receiving 24 points in 36 months will result in a driver’s license suspension
