Keep Speeding Tickets Off Your Driving Record - Protect Your Illinois Driving Privileges

Experienced Speeding Ticket Traffic Attorney Tim Henderson can help protect your driving privileges.Speeding tickets in Illinois are not considered lightly and a speeding conviction can have serious implications for your insurance premiums and your driving privileges based on the Illinois Point System.  It is important that you seek advice from an Illinois Traffic attorney to make sure that you understand the charges and the possible consequences.  A traffic attorney will be familiar with the traffic court procedures and understand the possible rulings you could receive for your citation.

Appearing in Court can be nerve wracking and an experienced traffic attorney can help you through all of the necessary legal steps while trying  to achieve the best possible outcome.

A speeding conviction in Illinois can carry a wide range of consequences depending upon the specific charges cited on the ticket.  Examples of common moving violations and points assigned to these violations:

Speeding over the posted limit

  • 1-10 mph over limit                                       5 points
  • 11-14 mph    over limit                                 15 points
  • 15-25 mph over limit                                    20 points
  • Over 25 mph above the posted limit         50 points
  • Reckless Driving Conviction                        55 points

If the speeding ticket cites more than one moving violation, the points on your license and the possible consequences increase dramatically.  Three convictions for a moving violation in Illinois during a 12 month period will result in a license suspension.  This suspension is mandatory, not discretionary.  It is vitally important to avoid, whenever possible, a conviction and points on your license.

The length of your suspension generally is determined by points:

  • 0 through 14 points – No action.
  • 15 through 44 points – 2 month suspension.
  • 45 through 74 points – 3 month suspension.
  • 75 through 89 points – 6 month suspension.
  • 90 through 99 points – 9 month suspension.
  • 100 through 109 points – 12 month suspension.
  • 110 or more points – revocation (1 year).
