Belleville, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: 2 tickets under 18

My daughter is turning 18 in less than a month. She received one moving violation, and has taken the online drivers improvement course. She just now received another ticket for getting up to speed right before the speed limit sign. How can we keep her from getting suspended?

A: Technically, she is eligible to receive court supervision twice within a 12 month period, but it is at the judge’s discretion. An attorney may be able to help negotiate an agreement to prevent a conviction from being entered on the new ticket.

A: She will not be suspended given the situation you described. As long as the speeding ticket is less than 35 over, she is eligible for supervision. You can receive supervision twice every 12 months.

There are some other specifics regarding the speeds, but she’s probably okay.

You may want to consult with an attorney in your area. She might benefit from representation.

A: Same as the first one. Even if she is convicted she won’t be suspended.
