I recieved a speeding ticket for 22 mph over the limit. I have what I think is a decent driving record. Im 32 and haven't had a speeding ticket since I was 17. I plan on asking for court supervision, but was wondering what the probability of having to do traffic school was.
I had received a speeding ticket in Sept 21, 2019. When I pulled my driving abstract I see that there is a field SUP-DT (sounds like supervision start date) of Sept 30, 2019. Can someone tell me when my court supervision date ends? I got this ticket in Cook County. Below is my court supervision... Read more »
I recently went to court for improper passing of an emergency vehicle (officer stated “you got over but not far enough”). It is a pretty hefty fine. There were close to 500 people in the court room that day so everything was rushed. When my turn came up the local prosecutor was distracted and... Read more »
Some of the paperwork can be created or another agency can do it instead. You will need to have an administrative hearing with the secretary of state. I recommend that you contact Attorney Larry Davis for drivers license reinstatement in your geographic area
Hello, I am a truck driver with a class a cdl. In November I was going down hill and also did not realize the speed limit had dropped.

I bought a used car around 7pm and got pulled over around 1230am on the same night and apparently I didnt know that you can buy insurance online because I thought I wanted to wait the next morning to call the insurance company. The very next morning, I purchase the insurance.
If you are asking about an evaluation for a SOS hearing, it's six months. You want to do your classes first not only to make sure your update is current but also to incorporate any new information after completing classes.
I was pulled over for speeding about a half a mile from my house. I was trying to get home to use the bathroom. When I pulled into my driveway the officer said he smelled alcohol and that I appeared under the influence. I was placed under arrest. I refused a breathalyzer and a FST. I was taken into...

His name is Charles kerr from tampa and I would like to sue him-not his parents etc I just want him to see how it is not to have a life. My sister was an 18 year old homecoming queen and then she was killed.
Unless you have 4 or more convictions for DUI yes you can. First you have to resolve the driving while revoked ticket. Then you will have to have a hearing with the Illinois Secretary of State. There’s a long process to getting ready for that and you should consider retaining an attorney.
I have a guilty plea with supervision until 05/30/2020, recorded on 05/29/2019. I was given a ticket for a headlight being out, and driving on a suspended. I had a lawyer but then took a position for the state and was unable to represent me anymore. He said something about paying a reinstatement... Read more »
It sounds as though you are suspended simply because you did not pay the $250 reinstatement fee; in other words, the time on your suspension has run. Paying the fee would, if that is correct, give you valid privileges which will may help with the ticket....Read more »
I got a ticket for going 22mph over in a work zone(though it was at the end of the zone and I thought I could speed up,) and the ticket says appearance required in Southern Illinois. I was driving from Michigan, where I live, to Louisiana, where I go to college, and it would be quite difficult to... Read more »
Not at all. It's called a 30 day notice. A lot of counties will issue an arrest warrant or send in a notice to the SOS to suspend your license. In Sangamon County they send the notice and don't hold it against you.
I am two months away from turning 18 I got my first moving violation about 3 months ago when a woman stomped on her brakes and I couldn’t stop in time. I got a ticket for failure to reduce speed. Just the other night I got a speeding ticket 55 in a 40. Can I plead guilty to the failure to reduce... Read more »
if you show up in court on the failure to reduce she probably will not show and it will be dismissed. Alternatively, if both cases are in the same county, a good traffic lawyer could probably get a package deal.
