Chicago, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: I was pulled over for going 93 in a 70 in Wisconsin, but live in Illinois. How will points work?

I have a clean record as this is my first offense. Is there a way to either reduce points or get the violation removed through supervision and/or traffic school? I’m 21.

A: I do not know if Wisconsin has supervision. They may reduce it to a nonmoving violation or if it’s reported to Illinois one conviction is not going to affect your driving privileges

A: Wisconsin does not have court supervision. Ideally the ticket would be reduced to a non moving violation. An attorney in Wisconsin may be able to assist you or advise whether that is possible. Paying it outright would result in a conviction on your Illinois record.

A: Since Wisconsin does not have supervision I would get a lawyer there and try to have the speed reduced or they may reduce it to a non-moving violation. If the speeding ticket is reported to Illinois the conviction is will affect your driving record. You can email me and I can provide the name of lawyer in Wisconsin or you can look one up yourself.

A: You need to hire an attorney licensed in Wisconsin to assist you with this matter right away. The sooner you hire a Wisconsin attorney, the better. You need to tell that attorney that you are licensed in Illinois and that the ticket needs to be amended to a non-moving violation.
