Our law office's traffic attorneys recommend that drivers attempt to "amend" or "fix" all Olathe, KS red light tickets due to the serious and lasting impact these tickets can have on auto insurance rates and driving records.
Any traffic ticket in Olathe, Kansas can cause your insurance rates to go up, but red light violations often lead to the highest insurance premium increases. The reasoning behind these large rate increases is that Olathe intersection traffic accidents and other "right-angle" crashes in Johnson County, KS often lead to serious and debilitating personal injuries or deaths for the occupants of both vehicles, which increases an insurer's risk. Insurers compensate for the added risk by increasing rates.
Our law firm's traffic attorneys can represent you in Olathe, Kansas Municipal Court and negotiate with Olathe Municipal prosecutors to make sure that the ticket is not recorded on your driving record and does not cause your insurance rates to rise. These solutions include amendments to non-moving violations which do not count as "points" or negative marks on your driving record, diversions, or other advantageous resolutions.
A. No attorney can guarantee results, but our Overland Park traffic lawyers have had a great deal of success negotiating with Overland Park Municipal Court prosecutors on red light violations/tickets to secure amendments of red light tickets to non-moving violations, usually "illegal parking."
An amendment to “illegal parking” is treated by your auto insurance carrier like an expired meter (albeit an expensive meter!) and will not be reported to your insurance company and will not appear on your driving record, regardless of the State you are licensed in. If you are a Kansas resident, then the amended ticket won't count as a mark towards a driver's license suspension (three moving violations in a year will trigger a driver's license suspension.) If you're a Missouri resident, then the red light amendment won't add any points to your driver's license.
A. Hiring our law office to handle your Overland Park red light ticket is easy and relatively pain free. Simply call us at (913)764-5010 and one of our traffic lawyers will be happy to discuss your case with you.
Once you have discussed your case with our law firm, payment can either be made in cash, but check, or via credit (debit) card over the phone or in person. We will send you a receipt for the initial payment and then a second receipt from the Court once the ticket has been taken care of.
In most cases, you will not have to appear in Overland Park Municipal Court – our firm’s traffic attorneys will appear on your behalf, saving you hours of waiting.
A. The cost to "fix" your ticket will vary based on the circumstances of the violation, your driving history, and other factors such as where the ticket was issued, the time the ticket was issued, and any conversations you may have had with the Overland Park police officer who wrote the ticket. However, in Overland Park, the amended cost is usually a $250 fine.
Call our law firm at (913)764-5010 and one of our office’s traffic attorneys should be able to offer a quote for "fixing" the ticket over the phone which includes the court fines, costs, and our attorneys’ fee. You may also send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will respond to your message.
A. If you missed your court date in Overland Park, then a warrant was almost certainly issued for your arrest. The Court will also send notice of the missed court date to the Kansas Department of Revenue which will suspend your driver's license after 30 days have passed.
Active Overland Park traffic warrants can be served at any time, including while you are at work or home. It is incredibly embarrassing to have a Johnson County Sheriff’s Officer show up at your work to arrest you for an unpaid Overland Park traffic ticket, so it is very important to take care of the problem immediately.
Our firm’s Overland Park traffic lawyers can usually get an Overland Park arrest warrant set aside once we enter an appearance on your behalf. It is imperative that you call us at (913)764-5010 to handle the case before a Johnson County Sheriff shows up at your work or home.
