Q. I recieved 2 tickets a month apart, I just finished the traffic school, and have the option to do another one.
A: It is very unlikely that you are eligible to take another traffic school course without appearing in court. The instructions on the ticket may explain that you can only do so once a year. However, you can receive court supervision twice within a 12 month period under Illinois law, but it is not automatic. The judge would need to agree to a second order of court supervision. It is also importantly to note that you may be in violation of the court supervision imposed on your initial ticket. I would suggest speaking directly to an attorney to review your record, discuss the specifics and determine the best strategy.
Q. I am 17 and got my first ticket, going 30 over in county of dupage , are the consequences serious ?
A: Speeding 26-34 mph over the posted speed limit is a Class B misdemeanor. In other words, it is a criminal offense rather than a petty offense. The maximum penalty is 6 months in jail and a $1,500 fine. Although the maximum penalty is extremely unlikely, the top priority is to avoid a criminal conviction and minimize the consequences. Often, your attorney would attempt to negotiate a reduction of the offense to a regular (petty) speeding offense and a period of court supervision, which would prevent the ticket from appearing on your public record. Consequences such a traffic school and/or community service are very common under these circumstances. Contact an attorney directly to discuss the specifics.
Q. i was going 90 on a 55 i didn’t get a ticket but i do have to go to court what should i expect.
A: It sounds like there may be some confusion. Were you charged with speeding 90 in a 55? Did the officer provide you with paperwork indicating that you have a required court appearance? In Illinois, speeding 35 mph or more over the limit is a Class A misdemeanor. Class A misdemeanors are criminal charges and punishable by a maximum of 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine. While the maximum penalties are unlikely, these cases are treated much differently than regular traffic violations. Typically, the goal is to avoid a criminal conviction on your record and minimize the consequences. Among other factors, any prior history of traffic violations will weigh heavily on the result of your case. You are encouraged to contact an attorney directly that practices in the specific county/courthouse where you are required to appear. Best of luck to you.
Q. I just got a ticket for speeding 28 mph over the speed limit. With a clean record, will I get the full punishment?
A: Speeding 26-34 mph over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor. The maximum punishment is 6 months in jail and a $1,500 fine plus court costs. The maximum punishment is extremely unlikely, especially for a driver with a clean record. However, avoiding a criminal conviction and reducing the consequences is a top priority. You are strongly encouraged to seek legal representation.
Q. License suspension for 3 convictions in 1 year: Do they go by the dates of conviction or the dates tickets issued?
A: The Secretary of State determines the suspension based on dates of issuance. It may be possible to clear this type of suspension. I would strongly suggest contacting an attorney in the county where the tickets were issued to discuss a motion to vacate. If successful, a conviction could be removed and the suspension would be cleared.
Q. son is under 21 & got 2 speeding tix. Paid them w/o telling us so it's on his record. Any way to get this off record?
A: Yes, it is very possible to clear one or both of the convictions and remove the suspension. Contact an attorney in the county where the tickets were issued to discuss a motion to vacate. Best of luck.
Q. I got ticket for speeding 37 in IL. It was first time violating traffic law. Is it possible to get court supervision ?
A: Speeding 35 mph or more over the posted limit is a Class A misdemeanor. The goal is to avoid a criminal conviction and minimize the potential consequences. An attorney will typically attempt to negotiate a reduction of the charge and convince the judge and prosecutor to agree to a period of court supervision. The outcome depends on a number of factors including any prior traffic violations. Because you have a very good driving record, avoiding a conviction should be possible, the situation must be handled properly. At a minimum, you can expect traffic school, fines, and potentially community service hours. You are strongly encouraged to seek legal representation.

Q. I just got a local ordinance ticket for driving with expired registration in Illinois
A: Appear in court with the renewed registration and the judge and/or prosecutor may agree to dismiss the charge. You will need a parent present due to your age. A dismissal would prevent any consequences financial or otherwise. You can always seek the representation of an attorney to assist.
Q. I got a speeding ticket for going 30 over
A: Speeding 26-34 over is a Class B misdeameabor. Technically, punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a $1,500 fine plus court costs. However, the maximum penalty is extremely unlikely. The goal is typically to negotiate a reduction of the charge with the prosecutor and keep the offense off of your public record while minimizing any additional penalties. It sounds like you have a good driving record, which will certainly be taken into account. You are not facing a license suspension if this is your first ticket in 5 years. Avoiding a criminal conviction is the top priority. Speak directly to an attorney of your choosing to discuss the details and legal representation. Best of luck!
