Legal Answers
244 Questions Answered

Q. So I got a no proof of insurance ticket today, the ticket has a fine of 140. Is that the true?
A: The insurance ticket should require a court appearance. Fines and costs would be assessed by the judge. Bring proof of insurance covering the time of the ticket. If you didn’t have it, bring after-acquired insurance to minimize fines and request court supervision. A conviction would cause a mandatory 3 month license suspension. Contact a local attorney to discuss options.
Q. 2 tickets in a month in different counties. Help
A: Technically, you can receive court supervision twice within a 12 month period. The judge has discretion. While it is not guaranteed, an attorney can help you achieve the best possible outcome.
Q. I have citation for improper lane usage, speeding and accident involved in Illinois.
A: That is likely because you received more than one citation. The officer mistakenly marked the tickets as no court appearance required. If you are unable to appear in court, contact an attorney that practices in the courthouse where your tickets are assigned. An attorney may be able to appear on your behalf.
Q. got a ticket for speeding last year and had court supervision and traffic school in Illinois. If I just got a ticket
A: You can technically receive court supervision twice within a 12 month period, but it is not automatic, it is at the judge's discretion. An attorney may be able to assist in securing a second order of court supervision.
Q. I got a ticket for failure to completely stop at a stop sign will my license get suspended?
A: You should try to avoid a conviction on the new ticket as well. Technically, you are eligible for court supervision (a non-conviction sentence) twice within a 12 month period, but it is not automatic. It may be worth consulting with an attorney to assist you. Your license will not be suspended based on a single conviction (2 convictions within 24 months will cause a suspension for drivers under 21 years of age).
Q. 17 year old got traffic ticket for using cell phone. Since not a moving violation will it be on record if pay the fine?
A: The offense will still be reported to the Secretary of State even though a first offense is not a moving violation under current law (changing soon). Could effect insurance, etc. I would suggest requesting court supervision.
Q. I have several fines from the 90's that i never paid. Do I have to pay them before I can try to get my license back?
A: If they were reported to the Secretary of State, you will need to pay them prior to obtaining a license.
Q. Is there a way to avoid having to complete a SATOP course?
A: Illinois will likely not issue a license until the suspension/hold out of Missouri is cleared. If you want to avoid completing the program, you should consult with an attorney in Missouri to see if there is another way to remove the suspension.
Q. I just received a ticket for running a stop sign. I'm just a new driver and have never gotten a citation.
A: The fine and convenience fee seem to indicate that this may be some type of local ordinance violation that is not going to be reported to the Secretary of State (and may not appear on your driving record). Read the ticket carefully, if it gives you the option of court supervision/traffic school, that may be your best bet. If there is a phone number on the ticket, call and ask if this will be reported on your driving record if you pay it.
