2017 Traffic Bench Guide

The 2017 Traffic Bench Guide is a quick reference manual for the use of judges, prosecutors and lawyers involved in the disposition of traffic cases.

This year, as in recent years, there have been a number of legislative changes that affect traffic offenses. Among others, there have been significant changes in the severity of violations for CDL- and alcohol-related offenses.

The 2017 Traffic Bench Guide was made possible by a grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation, Division of Highway Safety under contract number 32-154-AL-083.
