Driving is a privilege and not a right. Because driving is such a common occurrence in Illinois resident’s lives, most people forget about the dangers of driving. A minor infraction can lead up to a suspension of your driver’s license, a fine, or even warrants that lead to jail time. Our law firm can help you with your tickets.
A Lake County traffic ticket attorney can help assist you in getting your traffic tickets dismissed or reduced to non-moving violations. A traffic lawyer can also get you a court date immediately when your license is suspended. This process can halt the suspension and quickly help put you back onto the road. Being a negligent driver or having excessive points could cause your license to be suspended in Illinois.
A Ticket Can Cost You More Than A Fine
If you are given a speeding, parking, or other type of moving violation ticket, it can be very expensive because of the fines. Not only the expense, but also it goes on your driving record and can cost you points on your record that could get your license taken away. Tickets can also raise your insurance rates by over 50%. If you want to contest the infraction in court instead of paying the fee, you need to hire a knowledgeable traffic attorney.
Typical speeding tickets could cause you to have points on your DMV driving record and raise your insurance rates. However, if you were speeding more than 15 MPH over, it could be a serious violation and accumulate many more points than a regular speeding ticket. This also puts you at risk for license suspension. Once you go over 25 MPH, you face the risk of being arrested and face possible jail time. You are required by the judge to have a lawyer if you are caught going over 25 MPH. There are also heavy fines associated with this. A Lake County traffic lawyer is well worth the cost when you realize what is at risk in your case.
Illinois DMV could cause your license to be suspended for up to a year or even revoked depending upon how many points you have on your driver’s license or as a negligent operator. Traffic lawyers could help reduce or do away with these seemingly mandatory license suspensions.
