The officer said she was traveling too fast as well and made note of that on the ticket. So yes it was good that he did not issue a speeding ticket however, the plate is fully visible. It has a dealer frame around it but that does not obstruct the number or the registration sticker in any way. Do... Read more »
The speeding ticket can be issued after the fact. Whether or not that would happen is an unknown. If the cop has nothing better to do than write this type of ticket, he may waste his time on adding a speeding ticket.

The state of Illinois considers driving revoked, particularly when the reason for the revocation is a DUI or other serious traffic offense, to be a serious violation of law. Given that you mentioned IDOC, it appears it was or could have been a felony.
