What is the fine for speeding in Missouri?

A driver can take a significant financial hit in connection to a speeding ticket. For one, speeding convictions come with fines. What the level of these fines are depends on several factors. We’ll go over the main ones today.

What speed a driver was going

The standard fines for speeding come at different levels depending on how much over the posted speed limit a motorist was driving. The standard amount of costs and fines for speeding in Missouri are as follows

  • 1-5 mph over the limit - $85
  • 6-10 mph over the limit - $99
  • 11-15 mph over the limit - $124
  • 16-19 mph over the limit - $149
  • 20-25 mph over the limit - $224

What county a person was ticketed in

Different counties in the state have different additional charges they put on top of the standard fine/cost for speeding tickets. The added charges for the four main counties in the Kansas City area are:

  • Jackson - $4
  • Clay - $4
  • Cass - $16
  • Platte - $4

Other factors

There are various additional factors that can impact how much in costs and fines speeding allegations could expose a person to in Missouri. One is whether the alleged speeding occurred in a construction zone, as speeding in such zones has upped fines. Another is whether the person is accused of additional traffic violations on top of speeding.

In addition to fines and costs, a speeding ticket could also hit a person’s pocketbook through things like insurance rate increases.

So, how a person responds to a speeding ticket can have financial implications. Given this, when ticketed for speeding, it can be important for individuals to look into their options before deciding how to proceed.
