Clinton County had 84 speeding tickets issued in October 2012 by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. This places Clinton County 31st overall out of 115 Missouri counties and 27th per capita. Most of these speeding tickets were undoubtedly on Interstate 35 (I-35) near Cameron and Lathrop, but it is also likely that some were issued on US-69, US-169 and Missouri Route 116 near Plattsburg in rural Clinton County.
If you’ve been issued an FCC speeding ticket for a speed of less than 25 mph over the posted limit, then you will have 30 days to plead guilty by paying the fine or to plead not guilty and begin the legal process. You can access the FCC’s website here. If you plead guilty, a conviction will go on your driving record and 3 points will be added to your license (this might be even steeper for out-of-state motorists.) A conviction on your driving record will probably also cause your insurance rates to spike. If you decide to plead not guilty, then your case will be sent to Clinton County Court and you will receive a court date to appear before a judge regarding your ticket.
