East Moline, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: Hello, under what circumstances is traffic school required for a speeding ticket with court supervision?

I recieved a speeding ticket for 22 mph over the limit. I have what I think is a decent driving record. Im 32 and haven't had a speeding ticket since I was 17. I plan on asking for court supervision, but was wondering what the probability of having to do traffic school was.

A: It depends upon the county. Where I practice the most they never require it. In other places, they always do. I am not sure about Rock Island County.

A: It depends county to county and judge to judge. Oftentimes, it is not required for a minor speeding ticket if you have a good driving record.
