In Missouri, the fine you will have to pay and the number of demerit points that will be added to your driving record will depend on the nature of the violation. For example, speeding tickets in the state can result in fines ranging from $72 to $208; this is based on how fast you were driving and other circumstances, such as speeding in a school zone.
Whether you live in Missouri or Oklahoma, paying your ticket essentially amounts to pleading guilty and having points added to your record. Too many points can result in a license suspension and increase your auto insurance premiums. For example, Oklahoma can suspend your license after you have accumulated 10 points within five years. You can also automatically lose your license if you are found with marijuana in your car, fail to stop or remain stopped for a school bus, or are found driving with a suspended or revoked license.
