A: 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.

A: Speeding 26-34 over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor. The $1,500 is an I-bond, no need to worry about that amount specifically unless you fail to show up in court. However, you are technically facing a maximum $1,500 fine and up to 6 months in jail on the offense. Additionally, if convicted, you are facing a license suspension. It only takes two tickets within 2 years when you are under the age of 21. Many of these more serious consequences can likely be avoided, but you will want to find proper legal representation.

A: You need to hire an attorney right away to assist you with this matter. You have been charged with a criminal offense and a conviction on such a charge will cause you issues with employment, education, housing and financing for the rest of your life. The sooner you hire an attorney the better.
