Im 19. I was in a car accident and got a ticket for failure to reduce speed. Im on supervision and I got another ticket for speeding. I have to appear in court in 2 weeks. I do not know what will happen. I have also gotten a couple of warnings as well.
You are allowed two court supervisions in a twelve month period but there is no guarantee that you will receive court supervision a second time. Your current supervision could be revoked and if you receive a conviction on the new ticket along with your supervision being revoked, your license will...Read more »
I posted a question about what to expect from speeding in a school zone yesterday, and today we realized the cop wrote down the wrong information on the citation. He had my license with him but he pulled up my fathers record and wrote his information down instead (we have the same name). Wrote down... Read more »
Your best approach is to hire an attorney to assist you with this matter. That attorney will likely request a trial date and attack the credibility of the officer during trial. The sooner you hire an attorney the better.
I got pulled over for going 44 in a school zone, before this I’ve only gotten pulled over with a warning for a broken tail light. I’m 18 by the way. The citation given has a court date on it but no fine. What should I expect on that date, as far as possible consequences. What are the typical... Read more »
You will pay money for fines and costs. This is not an automatic suspension item but you cannot receive supervision unless the stat would agree to amend the charge to simple speeding. If you are convicted the Sec of State will mail you are warning letter than you must go conviction free for the...Read more »
Depending on a couple of factors, there are different options. More information is needed - courthouse/county and the type of offense. You can file a motion at the courthouse to bring the case into court early and request to reset the initial court date. You may also be able to hire an attorney to...Read more »
I was in Illinois and I’m 19 and have no records of a speeding ticket before. I got one for going over 20 mph but not exceeding 25 mph. I was so nervous and didn’t want to forget paying my ticket so as soon as I got home I immediately paid it. But as I was reading I realized I didn’t click on... Read more »
Contact the Clerk’s Office at the courthouse where the ticket is assigned to see if a conviction was already entered. At this point, I would assume that a motion to vacate would need to be filed at the courthouse if you want to keep the offense off of your record. The case can be brought before...Read more »
I recieced two of the same types of tickets and just pleaded guilty and paid the court costs, I travel for work now and didnt realize the ticket from 2017 would effect my job. One county changed the mileage without a second question from back in 2016, the second county said it wasnt possible to... Read more »
Tickets do not just drop off if you do not deal with them. You need to have an experienced traffic attorney review your driving record to tell you what you need to do in order to get your license back. The sooner you do this the better.
The maximum penalty is very unlikely. However, it is still a criminal offense (Class B misdemeanor). The goal is to avoid a criminal conviction and minimize the other potential additional consequences. Community service, traffic school and fines are all more likely than jail time. A lot depends on...Read more »
I get pulled over for no front plate officer approaches window do you have you drivers licence and insurance. My answer no I don't I left it at home and insurance is on my phone but I have my ID. Officer aggressive starts looking through the drivers side with his flash light. Then proceeds to ask... Read more »
Have you been charged with a crime? If so, you need to hire an attorney to assist you right away. The sooner you hire an attorney the better. If you have not been charged with a crime, there is not much you can do at this point.
You are allowed two court supervisions in a twelve month period. If you are under 21 and you receive two moving violation convictions within a 24 month period, your license will be suspended. If you are 21 or older and you receive three moving violation convictions in a 12 month period, your...Read more »
was driving but in the end I confess that i was the one and he ask me why i lied and i told him that i’m so nervous which is true that i startled. what’s going to happen to me in the court? I’m only 16?
Worst case, you will likely get Court Supervision and fine and have to complete Traffic Safety School. Best case, the ticket is dismissed if the other driver does not show up to court. If you are really concerned, you can hire an attorney to assist you with this matter.
Your GDL restrictions will be extended. Go to court and ask for supervision. In order to do that you have to have a parent or guardian present and you will have to take a safe driving course. If the other driver does not show up in court asked that the ticket be dismissed. You might want to have...Read more »
The insurance ticket should require a court appearance. Fines and costs would be assessed by the judge. Bring proof of insurance covering the time of the ticket. If you didn’t have it, bring after-acquired insurance to minimize fines and request court supervision. A conviction would cause a...Read more »
I got 2 speeding tickets in a matter of a month, unfortunately. 2 of them are in different counties. I have already called one of the tickets circuit clerk and have a court date next month. Am I allowed to ask for court supervision for each other counties?
It depends on if OH treats this type of ticket as a moving or non-moving violation. If it is considered a non-moving violation, which would be the case in Illinois, there is no issue and it will not cause you any issue with your CDL. If it is considered a moving violation, you will want to hire an...Read more »
Appearance required. The ticket was issued due to an accident. No one was injured or taken to hospital the cop gave me the yellow forms for Driving School to keep the ticket off my record. Now the Circuit Clerks office is staring the cop incorrectly filled out my ticket and I’m required to appear... Read more »
The cop was mistaken. The clerk is correct. This will probably benefit you because when you show up in court and the other side does not show up, and they rarely do, the case will be dismissed with no fine no traffic school
The offense will still be reported to the Secretary of State even though a first offense is not a moving violation under current law (changing soon). Could effect insurance, etc. I would suggest requesting court supervision.
