Luckily 25 mph over the limit is still a petty offense (non-criminal), while 26+ mph is a misdemeanor. You may be eligible for court supervision to keep this offense off of your record. Depending on your age, it may require completion of traffic school.

I had received a speeding ticket in Sept 21, 2019. When I pulled my driving abstract I see that there is a field SUP-DT (sounds like supervision start date) of Sept 30, 2019. Can someone tell me when my court supervision date ends? I got this ticket in Cook County. Below is my court supervision... Read more »
I recently went to court for improper passing of an emergency vehicle (officer stated “you got over but not far enough”). It is a pretty hefty fine. There were close to 500 people in the court room that day so everything was rushed. When my turn came up the local prosecutor was distracted and... Read more »
Ticketed by unmarked police car who claimed he was traveling 76 (in 70) while being passed on right. Warning for speeding 1-10 over. Son will request bench trial, but should he NOT request court supervision because of the seemingly bogus "passing on right"?
It seems to me that there may be more to this story, but on its face, it seems that this ticket will not stand up in court. If he really wants to fight this ticket, he should hire an attorney to assist him. The sooner an attorney is hire, the better.
It may be possible to file a motion to vacate and bring the ticket back into court. If you show proof of new (after acquired) insurance the fines may be reduced. It will not be dismissed unless you show proof of insurance from the date of offense in 1997.
Hello, I am a truck driver with a class a cdl. In November I was going down hill and also did not realize the speed limit had dropped. I ended up getting pulled over by an undercover and hit with a speeding 15+. I got a letter from my state, IL saying that I’ve got 2 infractions and one more will... Read more »
It sounds like there was a miscommunication somewhere along the line or there is a misunderstanding. It takes two 'serious' moving violations (i.e. speeding 15+) in a commercial vehicle within 3 years to cause a CDL disqualification. It would take 3 moving violations in your personal vehicle within...Read more »
no insurance ticket hours later heading home. One month ago I received a car as a gift for my girlfriend and I. We put her plates on it to drive it home and got ticketed for that. Both tickets occurred in Illinois. Court for both is next month.
You will need a parent or legal guardian present if you are appearing in court. If you are just paying the ticket for a conviction you likely do not need a parent present. You can confirm with the Clerk's Office.
You should appear in court to try to keep the ticket off of your record with court supervision. You will likely need to complete a traffic safety course. It only takes two convictions within two years to cause a license suspension when you are under the age of 21.
I bought a used car around 7pm and got pulled over around 1230am on the same night and apparently I didnt know that you can buy insurance online because I thought I wanted to wait the next morning to call the insurance company. The very next morning, I purchase the insurance.
It is likely that the unpaid ticket is impacting your driving privileges. You can speak to the Secretary of State's office to confirm the specific reason for your suspension and whether there are other issues that need to be addressed before the suspension is removed.
The police officer marked your ticket incorrectly. 26 mph over the posted speed limit is a Class B Misdemeanor and requires a court appearance. The Circuit Court Clerk will be sending you a court date notice. You will need an attorney to assist you with this matter because it is not a simple...Read more »
