I have a CDL and I was pulled over for for a speeding ticket at 18 over.... instead of paying the ticket worried that it would go to my driving record I requested to plead not guilty and go to court in front of a judge not a jury. I drive for a school district and if convicted I could loose my job.... Read more »
I would certainly hire a traffic lawyer from the county where the ticket is from. With a CDL you have to be very careful as they are logged on your drivign record much differently than an non-CDL driver. Hopefully the lawyer can have the ticket amended to reduce the penalty.
I would hire an attorney for the Illinois ticket. If you have three convictions on your record you will get suspended if you are over 21 years old. Make sure whether the Arkansas tickets are logged in on your Illinois record becasue they will count
I paid the additional costs for court supervision and they said I would have to attend a class and they would send out a schedual which I never got and now the ticket is on my record. Is there anything I can do to get it removed
A Motion to Vacate must be filed with the court to bring the case back to court. You can explain the situation to the Judge and ask that the Court Supervision be reinstated and the permanent conviction be removed. You wil have to get the trafic school done. it would be wise to do it before the...Read more »
You can go to a DMV with ID and $120.00 to obtain a driving abstract or go to Cyberdriveillinois.com and search the Illinois DMV website on how to order one by mail A warrant in Indiana will have no effect
$150.00. The car was towed to Andy tow in Venice. The police department will no release the car because their stating you do not own the car so we are not going to release the car to you. We showed them the insurance, Bill of sale, and the Jimmy Kavadas car company even confirm the ownership of the... Read more »

Than I got a ticket for speeding 26 Mph -34 mph. The officer did not arrest me but made me sign some papers . I think it’s a individual bond.... Read more »
Given your age and the amount of tickets the only tip I can offer is to contact a lawyer. FYI, for drivers under 21 years old two convictions in 24 months will lead to a suspension. The length of the suspension is determined on the type and severity of the tickets on your record. Also, the...Read more »
The officer is only required to offer a breath or blood test once at the police station. But, first he must read you the "Warning to Motorist" form explaining the consequences of taking the test or refusing. On the road he is not required to offer any chemical testing.
You need to have an SOS hearing which is more complicated and involved. then people think. If you live out of state or in Northern Illinois you can call me for a free consultation. Getting your "Court Purpose" driving record from the Illinois DMV is critical to determine your options
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.
First try to get the correct documents to make your plates valid. If they are expired this should be rather easy as paying for the registration. If you cannt get it done by Monday ask the Judge for a continuance and bring the documents to the next court date.
The conviction on your driving record may be due to you missing a court date and a Bond Forfeiture conviction being entered . You should contact a lawyer in your area to remedy the problem. He will need to check the court file and SOS to determine why this happened.
I would not do it. If you are stopped by the police for a traffic stop and they find our he is wanted you can be charged with Aiding a Fugitive. I would contact a lawyer in your area to get permission from a Judge
If you are older than 19 years old, dont have a bad record and go to court the Judge can grant Supervision without traffic school. You may also be able to mail in the ticket to request Court Supervision, pay the fine and then will have to complete the online four hour Traffic Safety School.
It depends on what county the ticket was written. In Cook County the officer is obligated to be present on the first court date. In other county's you must first request a trial date to fight the case. Check what the rules are in the county where the ticket was written
The other party claimed they had to drive over the median to avoid me. The only witnesses was the one who claimed I did this. They also said because they had to drive over the median they are hurt. What should I do? I have a court date on my ticket
You should certainly appear on the court date on the ticket otherwise the Judge will order a judgment of conviction and place it on your permanent driving record. To contest the charges I would seriously consider hiring a Traffic Law attorney to assist you at trial, as the other person has a...Read more »
They were called in for family but The scrips were actually call in from docs. They were not controlled substances and I was helping a friend who did not have a car. So if they are legit called in by a doctor why should I be in trouble. Plus the pharmacy gave them too me and never asked a... Read more »
It all depends on what courthouse and county the case is in, any possible injury suffered by the victim, any defense he must have. There are several variables that must first be known. I suggest contact an attorney in the county the case is at. if it is in Lake County you can contact our office.
A minor must be accompanied by a parent or guardian in court on a misdemeanor speeding ticket. I highly recommend obtaining an attorney in your area to accompany him in an effort to have the charge amended to a lower speed from a misdemeanor to a petty speeding ticket. It will help with insurance...Read more »
