Im 19. I was in a car accident and got a ticket for failure to reduce speed. Im on supervision and I got another ticket for speeding. I have to appear in court in 2 weeks. I do not know what will happen. I have also gotten a couple of warnings as well.
You are facing a license suspension if you receive a conviction on the new ticket and they revoke your supervision on the first ticket. Two convictions within 24 months at your age will cause a license suspension. However, you are eligible for supervision twice within a 12 month period, but that...Read more »
I posted a question about what to expect from speeding in a school zone yesterday, and today we realized the cop wrote down the wrong information on the citation. He had my license with him but he pulled up my fathers record and wrote his information down instead (we have the same name). Wrote down... Read more »
I got pulled over for going 44 in a school zone, before this I’ve only gotten pulled over with a warning for a broken tail light. I’m 18 by the way. The citation given has a court date on it but no fine. What should I expect on that date, as far as possible consequences. What are the typical... Read more »
My colleagues are correct. You cannot receive court supervision, which means an automatic conviction unless the charge is amended. Two convictions within 24 months (under the age of 21) will cause a license suspension. Fines/court costs and traffic school are standard under these circumstances. An...Read more »
Depending on a couple of factors, there are different options. More information is needed - courthouse/county and the type of offense. You can file a motion at the courthouse to bring the case into court early and request to reset the initial court date. You may also be able to hire an attorney to...Read more »
You must appear in court with a parent due to your age. Supervision is typical for a first ticket but it is up to the Judge. You would have to complete traffic safety school as well. Your license would only be suspended for two convictions within 24 months. Supervision does not count as a...Read more »
A second cell phone offense is treated as a moving violation (note: a first will count as a moving violation beginning in July under the new law). Because you are over 21, it would take 3 convictions within 12 months to cause a license suspension. However, if you want to remove the conviction, you...Read more »
I was in Illinois and I’m 19 and have no records of a speeding ticket before. I got one for going over 20 mph but not exceeding 25 mph. I was so nervous and didn’t want to forget paying my ticket so as soon as I got home I immediately paid it. But as I was reading I realized I didn’t click on... Read more »
Contact the Clerk’s Office at the courthouse where the ticket is assigned to see if a conviction was already entered. At this point, I would assume that a motion to vacate would need to be filed at the courthouse if you want to keep the offense off of your record. The case can be brought before...Read more »
I recieced two of the same types of tickets and just pleaded guilty and paid the court costs, I travel for work now and didnt realize the ticket from 2017 would effect my job. One county changed the mileage without a second question from back in 2016, the second county said it wasnt possible to... Read more »
Unfortunately, no. You would need to resolve the ticket before you can get your license back. You may be able to file a motion to request supervision depending on the circumstances. It may be worth contacting an attorney that practices in that specific county/courthouse.
The maximum penalty is very unlikely. However, it is still a criminal offense (Class B misdemeanor). The goal is to avoid a criminal conviction and minimize the other potential additional consequences. Community service, traffic school and fines are all more likely than jail time. A lot depends on...Read more »
They can revoke your court supervision and enter a conviction due to the new violation. As far as suspending or revoking your driver’s license - it would take 2 convictions within 24 months if you are under 21 years old. 3 convictions within 12 months if you are 21 or older.
The insurance ticket should require a court appearance. Fines and costs would be assessed by the judge. Bring proof of insurance covering the time of the ticket. If you didn’t have it, bring after-acquired insurance to minimize fines and request court supervision. A conviction would cause a...Read more »
I got 2 speeding tickets in a matter of a month, unfortunately. 2 of them are in different counties. I have already called one of the tickets circuit clerk and have a court date next month. Am I allowed to ask for court supervision for each other counties?
The offense will still be reported to the Secretary of State even though a first offense is not a moving violation under current law (changing soon). Could effect insurance, etc. I would suggest requesting court supervision.
That is likely because you received more than one citation. The officer mistakenly marked the tickets as no court appearance required. If you are unable to appear in court, contact an attorney that practices in the courthouse where your tickets are assigned. An attorney may be able to appear on...Read more »
You should try to avoid a conviction on the new ticket as well. Technically, you are eligible for court supervision (a non-conviction sentence) twice within a 12 month period, but it is not automatic. It may be worth consulting with an attorney to assist you. Your license will not be suspended...Read more »
got a ticket for speeding last year and had court supervision and traffic school in Illinois. If I just got a ticket recently for not fully stopping at a stop sign, will the judge let me do court supervision again? Or will it go on my record for my insurance to see
You can technically receive court supervision twice within a 12 month period, but it is not automatic, it is at the judge's discretion. An attorney may be able to assist in securing a second order of court supervision.
I received a DUI the state of Missouri, Summer of 2016. It resulted in my license being suspended and having to complete a SATOP program. I’m now a Illinois resident and am looking to getting my license here.
Illinois will likely not issue a license until the suspension/hold out of Missouri is cleared. If you want to avoid completing the program, you should consult with an attorney in Missouri to see if there is another way to remove the suspension.
