Hi, got a speeding ticket for going 60 in a 30. This is my first time ever getting in trouble with the law, I have no pervious background, I was also test driving a car when I got pulled over, I'm under 21. What is the most likely outcome for my case? Nervous about it!
I was more than 1/2 through the intersection on my motorized bike. I was thrown 15 plus feet by a suburban. My ankle was shattered and my bike was ruined. As well as stolen. Loss of ability to work. Inability to put any weight on my leg for 12 weeks. The intersection itself was completely unmarked... Read more »
My mom apparently coincidentally has a court date the same as mine. She has hers first. Hers is more serious than mine where mine is just a ticket so she needs to be there. If I came to the room by myself, but show proof she was there before or after so my mom can attend hers would that still apply... Read more »
The difficulty you can run into is that not all states have supervision or a similar deferral. If not maybe it can be reduced to a non moving violation. Most states are required by the Compact to report to other states. not all of them do.
I got a ticket last July 26,2019 and I just got another ticket July 22 2020. I’m 20 years old in the state of Illinois. My 2019 ticket, I too the safety school and finished court supervision. Will I get my license suspended?
If you really want a lawyer, and you should have one given that this is a criminal offense, you can either contact one as soon as possible or if you simply don’t have time, you can go to court and ask for a new court date and tell the judge you want to hire a lawyer. It won’t be a problem
I consulted a lawyer in Boone County where it happened, and he told me that it was a basic traffic ticket with a light fine and no suspension and recommended I pay it and avoid the court date. I did so, but recently I received a suspension notice that starts August 17th. I attempted to have an... Read more »
A formal hearing would take just as long or in fact longer because you couldn't get it set until October. I assume they suspended you under 6-206 (a)(6) because you committed an offense in another state that, if committed in Illinois, would cause a suspension. However if it's a four lane...Read more »
I'm 16 and It was 2am, and I was going 60 in a 30, there was no one else on the road. got a ticket for past curfew and paid it, my court date is tomorrow. What are my chances of getting my license suspended vs getting supervision?
If this is your only ticket in the last 12 months and you are over 21, your chances of getting suspended even if you are convicted are zero. However, it is a class B misdemeanor, which is a criminal offense.
I thought that there is usually an option to pay the fine and not have it affect my driving record or plead guilty. Only option appears to be paying the fine and pleading guilty or requesting a trial. The trial location would be hours from my home. Am I missing something?
My friend was holding a smoke bomb in a parking garage and I took a picture of him, we both have court dates. I’m only 18 and I wanted to know if there’s any way I could make it so it’s not on my record. Also will anything come in the mail regarding the court date
Also, is there any way to go about this without insurance finding out, and/or without it staying on my record? Finally, what would this be classified as? Again, first offense but I am young so they may slam me... thank you.
Hi everyone. I have a question of this. I had a ticket from McLean County in last November 27th. I paid the ticket already and done with the Traffic School already. My ticket are No Court Appearance Required also. So last 3 months ago I was checked my case on online that say I have Court... Read more »
the community service started in 3 weeks and navy relocated him to california two weeks later. He told judge this and he said well dont ever come back to florida or you'll be arrested. California gave him a license and so did illinois where we live now. Now illinois wont reissue his driver... Read more »
Last night I got a ticket from Batavia police. My record is decent with no other moving violations for well over a year. Previously I used a lawyer for my daughters violations and it proved useful. But in this case I'm not sure a lawyer could do any better than the supervision option. So... Read more »
