Juan Ooink's answer No, it should not be dismissed. The ticket can be amended up to the point of trial. You really should hire an attorney to assist you with this matter. The best thing you could do is to hire an attorney and show up to court with a valid license.
Juan Ooink's answer Since the ticket is marked as "Court Appearance Required", you have to appear in court and request Court Supervision. You could also hire an attorney to appear on your behalf to save you a trip to court.
Juan Ooink's answer You only need a parent or guardian present in order to receive Court Supervision. They do not have to be in court on your compliance date. Just make sure to bring the proof that you completed Traffic Safety School and paid all of your fines.
Theodore J. Harvatin's answer Those are like expensive parking tickets. Not a moving violation and I doubt the prosecutor in your supervision case will even be aware of it and or care. If they do, they have to file papers and notify you.
Brandon K. Davis' answer If you are 21 or older, 3 convictions within 12 months will cause a license suspension. If the two Arkansas tickets are reported back to Illinois and you are convicted of the Illinois ticket you will be suspended. You may want to consult with an attorney that practices in the area that you received the Illinois ticket to help keep a conviction off of your record. A dismissal or court supervision would prevent the ticket from counting toward a license suspension.
Brandon K. Davis' answer If you are 21 or older, 3 convictions for moving violations within 12 months will result in a license suspension. If you are under 21, 2 convictions within 24 months will result in a license suspension. Speeding and improper lane usage are both moving violations. Court supervision will not count toward a license suspension. You want may want to contact an attorney to appear in court on the most recent tickets in an effort to avoid a conviction.
David J. Winer's answer I highly suggest that you contact a traffic lawyer specifically in your area. I work only in Lake and Cook County only and am not familiar with your area. A local lawyer will be much more help
James G. Dimeas' answer Driving 26 to 34 over the speed limit is a Class B Misdemeanor in Illinois which carries a possible jail sentence of up to 6 months. Since it's an actual crime that carries a possible jail sentence, you will have a lawyer. If you can't afford one a Public Defender will be appointed for you.
Brandon K. Davis' answer Speeding 26-34 over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor. The $1,500 is an I-bond, no need to worry about that amount specifically unless you fail to show up in court - your case may last a couple of court dates - typically two (first for your attorney to work out an agreement with the State and the second to show proof that you complied with the terms of that agreement).
You are technically facing a maximum $1,500 fine and up to 6 months in jail on the offense. Additionally, if...
Jeremy Wang's answer The $1500 is the I-bond amount on the ticket. You do not have to pay it so long as you show up to every Court date. Speeding 26-34 mph above the speed limit is a criminal offense in Illinois. You will need an attorney.
