Traffic tickets in Illinois can have dire consequences. A single Traffic ticket may not be a big deal, but if you get a second moving violation ticket within a 12-month period, you need to call a traffic violations lawyer. Traffic violations — from DUI to seat belt violations — can threaten your driver’s license, result in heavy fines, raise your insurance rates, send you to mandatory classes or community service, and even affect your freedom. Talk to a traffic violations lawyer about your tickets.
These consequences can be particularly severe for people who are under 21. For people over 21, many traffic offenses can result in court supervision – this keeps a conviction off of a driver’s record, and allows a driver to avoid further penalties. For drivers under 21 though, the law imposes greater restrictions. To be eligible for court supervision rather than a conviction, a young driver must attend traffic school. Among other things, avoiding a conviction can have significant consequences for your insurance rates.
Commercial drivers (truck drivers) in Illinois face more severe driver’s license consequences than standard drivers.
