Daviess County is the home to more speeding tickets per capita than any other county in Missouri. This is undoubtedly because of the heavy traffic on Interstate 35 (I-35) running through Daviess County between Kansas City and Iowa. In October 2012, Missouri Ticket Lawyer found that 103 speeding tickets were issued by Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department through the Fine Collection Center (FCC). You can access the FCC’s website here. This placed 24th overall out of all Missouri counties and 1st per capita. Most of these tickets were issued for speeds of 6-10 mph and 11-15 mph over the posted limit.
If you’ve been issued an FCC speeding ticket in Daviess County, Missouri you will have 30 days to either plead guilty by paying the fine or plead not guilty and begin the legal process. If you plead guilty, a conviction will be placed on your permanent driving record and 3 points will be added to your license (this penalty could be even more strict if you are from out of state.) A conviction on your driving record will also give your insurance company a reason to raise your rates. If you decide to plead not guilty, then your case will be forwarded to the Daviess County Prosecutor and you will get a court date to appear in front of the judge at Daviess County Courthouse in Gallatin, Missouri.
