Q: A ticket for speeding in TX will affect my points or insurance in Illinois?
got a ticket for speeding (80 m/h in a 65 m/h zone at night, no workers) in TX, but my driver license is issued in IL
I called the judge and she told me I need to pay $184
A: You really should hire an attorney licensed in Texas to handle this matter for you. If you just pay the ticket, it will be reported to Illinois and your insurance company will find out about it. You need to have this ticket amended to a non-moving violation. When you speak with the Texas attorney, you must tell them that you are licensed in Illinois and that you need the ticket amended. The sooner you hire an attorney, the better.
