More speeding tickets are issued in Lewis County than almost any other Missouri County per capita. In October 2012, The Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department issued 91 speeding tickets through the Fine Collection Center (FCC). This was 26th most of all 115 Missouri counties by volume and 5th per capita. Most of these are issued 61 Highway (US-61) to motorists traveling between St. Louis and Illinois & Iowa, but some are also issued on Missouri Route 6 (MO-6), MO-81, and MO-156 throughout Lewis County.
A guilty plea to an FCC speeding ticket in Lewis County will add 3 points to your Missouri Driver’s License (it only takes 8 points in 18 months to have it suspended.) This could be even more harmful to drivers from Illinois, Iowa and other states. This conviction on your driving record will not only put your license in jeopardy, but it also might make your insurance rates spike.
