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.

Received court supervision for speeding ticket in will county, Illinois. Received another speeding ticket in a different county but don't know if the supervision from the first ticket has ended. No previous tickets in many years.
I got my first ticket for speeding, 20 over, 55 in 35, at age 17, received and completed supervision, just got a second ticket at age 18, going 25 over, 90 in a 65, 6 days shy of 12 months from first. How do I get court supervision again?
If you are under the age of 21 - two moving violations within a 36 month period will trigger a drivers license suspension. Court Supervision will avoid a suspension but that is entirely up to the judge if you are found guilty. Best to bring a traffic lawyer with you to Court.
