Convictions for speeding tickets constitute infractions and Kansas and moving violation points in Missouri. In Kansas, if you receive 3 infractions in a 12 month period or 5 infractions in a 36 month period, the Kansas Department of Revenue may move to suspend your driver’s license. In Missouri, an accumulation of points totaling 6-8 points in a specific time frame can result in the suspensioin of a Missouri driver’s license. Convictions occur if you plead not guilty to a speeding ticket, go to court and lose the argument and a judge enters a conviction for speeding. Additionally, simply writing a check for the amount of the fine on the speeding ticket and mailing it to the courthouse will result in a a conviction for speeding. Thereby resulting in an infraction on your Kansas driver’s license or 2 to 3 points on your Missouri driver’s license.
