Asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: court supervision for 90 days on speeding ticket and have a mandatory court date for rolling a sign 2 months later.

My mandatory court date for the stop sign is next year (my court supervision will expire) but I was pulled over before it ended. Will my supervision take into the account the date I rolled the stop sign or the date I plead guilty in traffic court?

A: Technically the supervision could be revoked if they file a petition. A lot of the larger counties don't bother to do so due to the resources (or lack thereof) that are available to them. You should contact a qualified attorney in that county that can assist you in this regard. There is a chance you could keep both matters from becoming a conviction upon your driving abstract.
