- 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!
- Q. I was doing 40 over on my way to OHare, I live in Wisconsin and they want me to show up in court in 2 weeks.
- A: An attorney may be able to change the initial court appearance date if that is the issue. Because it is a criminal offense (Class A misdemeanor), you will need to appear in court. The goal is to avoid a criminal conviction and keep the consequences to a minimum.
- Q. Can i recieve court supervision on a 2nd ticket in a 2 year time span to avoid getting my liscence suspended?
- A: You can receive court supervision twice within a 12 month period. This is the maximum under Illinois law. However, it is up to the prosecutor and judge, not guaranteed.
- Q. How can I get this to disappear off my record
- A: Speeding 26-34 mph over the posted limit is a Class B misdemeanor (criminal offense) in Illinois. It is not a standard traffic ticket, which is why you have the required court appearance. Class B misdemeanors are technically punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a $1,500 fine plus any mandatory court costs. The $150 is just a bond amount, not your fine. Although the maximum penalties are unlikely, the goal is to avoid a criminal conviction and minimize the consequences. Because of your job, keeping a clean record is important. You are strongly encouraged to speak directly with an attorney.

- Q. I got 2 speeding tickets in last 6 months. 1st i didnt do supervision i just paid it. Just got 2nd, im under 21,
- A: Your driver's license will only be suspended if and when you receive a conviction on the new ticket. Two convictions within 24 months will result in a suspension at your age. You will receive a notice of suspension from the Secretary of State if a conviction is entered in court on the new ticket or if you simply pay the new ticket. A work permit (RDP) would need to be applied for via a hearing with the Secretary of State once a suspension is entered on your record. It is a complex and lengthy process, which you should aim to avoid. You should consider legal representation to ensure the new ticket is handled properly. Best of luck!
- Q. If my daughter goes to driving school after a ticket does her insurance go up or is it not on her record?
- A: If the ticket was issued in Illinois, she likely took traffic school as a condition of court supervision. This would not appear on her public driving record and insurance would not find out about the ticket.
- Q. I got pulled over going 88 in a 55. This is my first time getting a ticket. I'm I going to lose my license?
- A: The offense itself does not cause an automatic license suspension. It takes 2 convictions on moving violations within 24 months to suspend your license if you are under 21 years old. 3 convictions within 12 months if you are 21 years old or over. However, it is a criminal offense and you should speak directly to an attorney to discuss representation.
- Q. In court for speeding 25mph over at night with an Initial License. Chances of court supervision/ Traffic school?
- A: Chances of court supervision are usually high on your first ticket. It is possible but typically unlikely that the prosecutor would file this type of additional charge after the fact, but nothing is guaranteed.
