Legal Answers
184 Questions Answered

Q. I received a moving violation in Cook County on 4/30 and completed traffic school. I then got a cell phone violation
A: You may still be eligible to request traffic school in Lake County without appearing in court if that option was given. I would suggest contacting the Clerk's Office to verify your eligibility before sending in payment. A second cell phone ticket is a moving violation.
Q. I got a expired tags ticket in 11/2017. I know I have a hold on my license but will they suspend it? If so, when?
A: It depends how it was entered on your record. You can verify this directly with the Secretary of State just to be safe. Your failure to pay may just prevent you from renewing your license when the time comes.
Q. Does the Illinois 3 tickets in 12 months counter restart from zero after a suspension?
A: Unfortunately, the 12 months does not start over after the original suspension. You are still subject to a new suspension under the rules (the prior offenses can still be used). Supervision will not count toward a suspension as Mr. Harvatin has pointed out.
Q. What are the chances I get supervision again for the 2nd time?
A: You are eligible for a second, but it is discretionary. It is certainly worth requesting another order of court supervision in court.
Q. I got a citation for obstruction traffic and have to appear for administrative hearing should I hire a lawyer?
A: It sounds like a city ordinance violation, which typically would not appear on your driving record. You should verify this first with the particular courthouse where the ticket is assigned.
Q. Im under court supervison as i just took a four hour class, i just recieved a ticket for disobeying traffic sign,options
A: Technically, you can receive court supervision twice within a 12 month period. However, this would likely require a court appearance and, ultimately, it is up to the Judge. You may wish to seek legal representation to ensure the best possible result. Best of luck.
Q. I got a speeding ticket 3 months ago and am under court supervision, but i got a cell phone ticket
A: It is unlikely to cause an issue. However, you can technically obtain court supervision twice within a 12 month period. You would likely need to appear in court to request a second order of supervision. As my colleague mentioned, a first cell phone ticket is not a moving violation (but it may still appear on your driving record).
Q. Is there a way to avoid a violation going on record if I am under 18?
A: If you are referring to a traffic ticket, you can prevent it from going on your public driving record if you receive court supervision. This would likely require a court appearance and traffic school due to your age.
Q. What can I expect as my first time getting a ticket at the age of 19 for both aggressive and reckless driving?
A: Aggravated speeding 35+ mph over the limit and reckless driving are both Class A misdemeanors under Illinois law. Technically, the maximum penalty is up to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine plus costs. However, there are a wide range of possibilities. Additional factors include the county, courthouse, Judge and prosecutor. However, your perfect driving record should certainly be taken into account. At a minimum, I would expect traffic school, community service and fines. The goal is to avoid a criminal conviction and minimize the consequences. Speak directly to an attorney that practices in the county where this took place to discuss the specifics and the most appropriate strategy. You need legal representation.
