Denver, CO asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: What happens when on court supervision for a ticket in August 2019 & receive a following too close?

I received a speeding ticket in Lake County on 8/28/19 & was placed on court supervision. Completed traffic school. On 2/8/19, I received a following too close ticket for a minor accident in McHenry County. How will the second ticket affect my court supervision. What are my chances to get the minor ticket dismissed? If there is a chance of dismissal, will having a lawyer increase my chances?

A: If you are still on court supervision at the time you received the second ticket, your supervision could be revoked and a conviction could be entered. The ticket for the traffic accident may be dismissed if the other party doesn’t show up in court or you may be eligible to receive a second order of court supervision. An attorney in McHenry County can certainly assist and ensure you receive the best possible result.
