Putnam County sees a fair share of speeding tickets issued despite a population of just 4900 residents. In October 2012, 22 speeding tickets were issued by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department. This total ranked just 84th out of all 115 Missouri Counties, but 24th per capita according to Missouri Ticket Lawyer’s survey. The most likely locations for these speeding tickets are Highway 136 (US-136) near Unionville and on Missouri Route 5 (MO-5) between Unionville and Iowa border.
If you have been issued a speeding ticket by the Missouri State Highway Patrol or Putnam County Sheriff’s Department it is likely being processed through the Fine Collection Center (FCC) in Jefferson City. You can access their website here. You have 30 days after being issued an FCC ticket to either plead guilty by paying the fine or to plead guilty and attempt to keep the ticket off of your driving record. If you plead not guilty, you might have to appear in front of the county judge at the Putnam County courthouse in Unionville.
