Amending a Traffic Ticket



Amending a ticket is a process where negotiations are made to plead down an infraction to a lesser offense in exchange for certain considerations which usually include a greater fine.  Amended tickets do not incur points on a driving record, or incur charges that may appear to insurance companies, credit evaluations, employers, or others who may view or inquire about your driving record.  You may amend your own ticket in some states, including Kansas.  However, other states such as Missouri require an attorney to complete the process.
