Schaumburg, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: Do red light camera tickets In Chicagoland Illinois go on driving record and make you lose your license?

I'm having trouble deciphering the rules of the road in Chicagoland/Chicago Suburbs area. When you get sent a red light camera ticket for going through a red light or making an incorrect turn through those cameras and you pay, how many can you get before it goes on your record? I have gotten many last year and none this year but so confused as to what will happen If i get more in mail cause i find myself going through yellow lights all the time or sometimes turning on red, etc. I get nervous. Do red light camera tickets In Illinois go on driving record and make you lose your license? Either turning on red or going through light. How many can you get before it goes on your record if you do indeed pay the fines? I have gotten about 7 last year and none this year. Am i ok? I do not want to lose my license or get in trouble with law and pay more fines. I need to know the exact law precisely.
