Q: So I got a no proof of insurance ticket today, the ticket has a fine of 140. Is that the true?

It happened in Macon County, IL. I was speeding and got a ticket for that also.

Jeremy Wang answered on Apr 16, 2019

The 140 is your bond. The penalty fine for no proof of insurance is much much higher.

Q: I got a ticket for failure to completely stop at a stop sign will my license get suspended?

I am 20 years old and recently finished court supervision back in November from a different ticket for speeding.

Jeremy Wang answered on Mar 25, 2019

Under age 21 - Two moving violation convictions within 24 months triggers a license suspension. Court Supervision, when successfully completed, does not count as a conviction.

Q: Do you need a guardian present with a minor when showing the completion of court supervision.

I did not receive any tickets within the 3 month time period, and I also have the letter from the school stating I completed the driving school. Do I need to have a guardian present, or can I go alone and show them the sheet and be done with the case?

Jeremy Wang answered on Mar 13, 2019

If you are a minor you should always have a parent or guardian accompany you to Court.

Either way just make certain you do show up to Court to show proof of completion of the driving school.

At best you may have been notified that a criminal bench warrant was issued for your arrest. The original signed and court clerk stamped warrant should be in your Court file.

Jeremy Wang answered on Feb 16, 2019

The $1500 is the I-bond amount on the ticket. You do not have to pay it so long as you show up to every Court date. Speeding 26-34 mph above the speed limit is a criminal offense in Illinois. You will need an attorney.

Q: I got a 2 tickets for driving on expired plates and speeding 15-20 over posted speed limit.

The method of release on my tickets is mentioned as paying 2000 and 120 dollars respectively. My court appearance is scheduled for this coming Monday . I'm a student and couldn't pay those fines. How can i proceed further in the court without taking any attorney.

Jeremy Wang answered on Feb 2, 2019

The method of release you are referring to is the bond amount you will have to pay if you fail to show up to Court. They are not the fines and fees. Just make certain you do show up to Court on Monday. Good Luck!

Illinois law requires you to notify the Secretary of State every time you change your address so they can send you notices. Failure to do so can lead to getting another ticket.

Q: Will I need the money for a traffic ticket (speeding) when I go to court, or can I pay it afterwards?

Jeremy Wang answered on Dec 16, 2018

If you show up to Court and the Court finds you guilty - the Court will give you a certain amount of time to pay your fines and fees. If you can not pay off what you owe - just come back on your return and ask the Court for more time to pay.

I was recently arrested for driving on a suspended license in Illinois. The fee is 1500. I must appear in court on December 14. Do I have to pay this fee before December 14 or will I have more time?

1) Call the county clerk and explain what happened - most likely the burden is on you to prove you did pay.

Or;

2) Call the collections agency and work out a written payment agreement.
