Q: I have a "operation of uninsured vehicle" ticket that I'm trying to pay
I have a "operation of uninsured vehicle" ticket that I'm trying to pay but it doesn't show up on the cook county website. How can I pay for the ticket, can I get in trouble if I go to the DMV to get a replacement license
A: Pay for the ticket? The only way you can pay for this ticket is if you have already appeared in court and the Judge has ordered you to pay a fine. If this has not happened, I strongly suggest you appear in court with either valid proof of insurance on the day you were stopped or proof of insurance after the date of the ticket.
A: Have you even gone to court on this yet? Go to court and show them your insurance (even if you got it after the fact)--the prosecutor may be willing to dismiss or change the citation
A: You need to go to Court first and figure out what is happening on this case. If you can show that you had insurance then, the prosecutor may be willing to dismiss the ticket. If you can show insurance after the fact, the prosecutor may be willing to adjust the ticket.
