He did not come to a full and complete stop at a stop sign. He does NOT have to appear in court but he does not want to have this on his record. By pleading guilty and paying the fine through the mail, does it stay on his record? For how long? Is he on probation? THANKS for your help!
Under Illinois law, speeding 26-34 mph over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor. Technically, this means that the offense can be punished by up at 6 months in jail and a $1500 fine. Court supervision is certainly possible. However, based on your driving record and other mitigating factors, it would...Read more »
I got a ticket for Scott’s law in June and was put on court supervision. I recently got another ticket for speeding and the officer said I don’t have to go to court and I could just pay the fine and request court supervision. I’m not sure if he could see I was already on court supervision for... Read more »
Technically, you can receive court supervision twice within 12 months. However, a second order of supervision will typically require that you appear in court. You may want to contact the Clerk's Office at the courthouse where the ticket is assigned to try to verify your eligibility. Technically, a...Read more »

As long as the ticket is under his name and license number it should not cause you any problems. There is no way to amend the ticket without appearing in court on the court date, but, again, that should not be necessary.
Im 19 clean driving record and got pulled over in a school zone, 38 in a 20 what should I expect with or without a lawyer. I had a discussion with the officer on the side of the road that there was cars near me and he said that didn't matter. I was unaware I was still in the school zone and the... Read more »
The major issue with speeding in a school zone is that you are not eligible for court supervision. As a result, if you plead guilty or if you are found guilty after trial, a conviction is the only possible sentence. An attorney may be able to negotiate an amendment to the offense or challenge the...Read more »
I'm a 17 yr old MO resident and got an IL ticket for 54 in a 35 construction zone from Alexander Co
I have 2 pts in MO for speeding already. I need my license for work and school and can't afford a lawyer or suspension. Should I just pay or is there a chance going before the judge would... Read more »
Because you are under 18 years of age a court appearance is typically required. In addition, speeding in a construction zone also requires a court appearance. Having an attorney present in court to attempt to reduce the violation and/or prevent a conviction on your record is encouraged but not a...Read more »
Certain tickets will give you the option of requesting court supervision without the need to attend court. Usually, this will require the completion of a traffic safety school course. Read the ticket carefully, it should explain your options. If this is not an option, a court appearance would be...Read more »
If you pay the ticket, a conviction will be entered on your record. If you appear in court (or have an attorney represent you in court), the offense can likely be kept off of your record with court supervision, which may or may not require you to complete traffic school.
When an officer issues a ticket he or she will provide with a physical ticket advising you of the offense, etc. It does not sound like you were given a ticket. I’m guessing it has to do with your age? Maybe the officer wants to bring your license to your home to speak with your parents. It may be...Read more »
The ticket says it was issued in Missouri? You would need to contact an attorney in Missouri to review the ticket - find someone local that practices in that specific county. At this point, a motion may need to be filed to contest the citation.
Could only find the expired insurance card when the police officer first approached. Then pulled up the current one on the mobile app and showed him once he returned from his vehicle. Officer said “I don’t have time for this” and gave me the court date information. Is this legal?
It is certainly frustrating that the officer wasn't more patient with you, but not an uncommon situation. The ticket will be dismissed in court if you provide the proof of insurance on your court date.
