Livingston County, Missouri has two major highways crossing its rural landscape (US-36 & US-65). Despite the traffic on these two major roadways going through Chillicothe, there were only 31 speeding tickets issued in Livingston County through the Fine Collection Center (FCC) in October 2012. This was the 56th highest total per capita.
An FCC speeding ticket issued by the Missouri State Highway Patrol allows a motorist 30 days after its issuance to either pay the fine or plead not guilty. You can access the FCC’s website here. Payment of the fine is considered a guilty plea and will lead to a conviction being added the motorists driving record and 3 points being added to their driver’s license (8 points is a suspension in Missouri.) If a motorist pleads not guilty, the speeding ticket is transferred to the Livingston County Prosecutor and a court date is set for the defendant to appear in front a judge in Chillicothe.
