The ticket says it was issued in Missouri? You would need to contact an attorney in Missouri to review the ticket - find someone local that practices in that specific county. At this point, a motion may need to be filed to contest the citation.
Could only find the expired insurance card when the police officer first approached. Then pulled up the current one on the mobile app and showed him once he returned from his vehicle. Officer said “I don’t have time for this” and gave me the court date information. Is this legal?
It is certainly frustrating that the officer wasn't more patient with you, but not an uncommon situation. The ticket will be dismissed in court if you provide the proof of insurance on your court date.
I have a CDL and I was pulled over for for a speeding ticket at 18 over.... instead of paying the ticket worried that it would go to my driving record I requested to plead not guilty and go to court in front of a judge not a jury. I drive for a school district and if convicted I could loose my job.... Read more »
Because of your CDL, the only way to keep a ticket off your record is by beating it at trial or having the ticket amended to a non-moving violation. Court supervision will not keep the ticket off of your record. If you have a school bus permit, Speeding 15 or more over the limit, even in your...Read more »
(Illinois) I got a speeding ticket in June and requested an online driving class. I have not taken the class yet. I just got another ticket in August. How will this affect my driving record? Will I get my license suspended? Can I request supervision? Do I still have to take the class? I am 24 years... Read more »
Yes you still have to take the class in order to get Court Supervision on your first ticket. You need to court to court on your second ticket and request Court Supervision. You are allowed two Court Supervisions every 12 months. Court Supervision is not a conviction and will not cause you any...Read more »
I'm having trouble interpreting my ticket. Got pulled over for speeding, going 20 miles over on highway. Not a new driver, but first offence. Ticket has no dollar amount listed on it, and box ticked that I "promise to comply". What does this entail? The paperwork with the ticket mentions... Read more »
I received a speeding ticket in Illinois last night pay the ticket requested safety driving class will that keep it from showing up in Texas my ticket that I got i did not do the full 12 months without a ticket
It depends if Texas will recognize court supervision from Illinois. The offense is still supposed to be reported back to your home state, even though under Illinois law, the traffic school would not count as a conviction (and not show up on your public record in Illinois). It is then up to your...Read more »
I got a DUI in Illinois in 2013. I got court supervision but left the state for good before I could complete it. I can't apply for one in Virginia until the "hold" is lifted in Illinois but the fines total almost $6000 dollars in Illinois. I don't have anywhere near that amount and I don't plan on...

You are not going to get very far with a failure to pay suspension. Even if they accepted the packet and even if you succeeded, they will not clear you until it’s all been paid or you manage a payment plan or some other agreement with the county where the fines are unpaid. The secretary state...Read more »
Got a DUI in 2013. Moved away before my court supervision was done and my license was revoked. I am trying to do this out of state packet for reinstatement and having a hard time understanding "Do you currently have any traffic tickets pending against you in Illinois or any other state?" I didn't... Read more »
If you answer yes they will kick the packet back to you and tell you to resolve the ticket. As long as there is not a failure to appear suspension on your record or a warrant, you are not considered pending. Sounds like you got supervision, did not complete the terms, they filed a petition to...Read more »
Speeding 26-34 mph over the posted limit is a Class B misdemeanor - a criminal offense. Technically, it can be punished by a maximum of 6 months in jail and a $1,500.00 fine. However, as your first ticket the maximum penalties are very unlikely. The goal would be to reduce to the offense and avoid...Read more »
The pull over was in Peoria, I knew they had been suspended before but they were still suspended due to financial reasons out of my control and since I’m in college and was not working at the time so I had to depend on my parents to pay things for me.
If your license was suspended at the time of the traffic stop, you are technically guilty. However, the prosecutor (and judge) may be more lenient based on the fact that your license has been reinstated. In some counties, they may even be willing to dismiss the case. You or your attorney should be...Read more »
A cop stop me because he said my temporary permit is coming loose of its tape in the rear window what he wrote me up under subsection B of that statute which covers restricted plates which are two different things clearly two different things
Since you are 6 days away from the 90 day mark - wait out the clock and allow the current court supervision to sunset satisfactorily (ie; pay off fines, complete traffic school, etc. ) on day 90 before you answer to this current speeding ticket.
I moved to Illinois a few months ago and was pulled over for failure to use turn signal. My insurance had just expired and had not yet been renewed as I was looking for cheaper insurance. What is 1st offense penalty of driving with no insurance?
If you bring newly issued insurance to court with you they will likely agree to offer court supervision and a fine because it's your first offense. Court supervision will prevent the suspension of your driver's license. A conviction would result in a 3 month license suspension.
I am under 21 and am trying to avoid getting my license suspended as I work and go to school. I have done & completed supervision for the 10/18 ticket. I’m not sure if supervision is over for the 2/19 ticket. What can I do to avoid suspension?
If your court supervision has also ended for the second ticket (which you should be able to determine by contacting the clerk's office in the county where the ticket was issued), you are not facing a license suspension. It would take two conviction within 24 months to cause a suspension because you...Read more »
