DuPage & Cook County Traffic Ticket Attorney - Joliet Traffic Violations

Chicago Traffic Ticket Attorney Serving Cook, DuPage, Kane & Will Counties

Often Illinois drivers receive a moving violation ticket, mail in their fine and think little more about it.  It is important to remember that, by paying your fine, you are admitting guilt and agreeing to have a conviction entered into your driver's record.  If you receive a second moving violation within the same 12 month period you run the risk of endangering your driving privileges. For drivers under 21, two traffic violations in a 24 month period can result in a license suspension.
Your consequences for a driving violation ticket in Illinois can vary dramatically depending upon the severity of the infraction, your age and your current driving record.  Traffic ticket penalties may include:

  • Fines
  • Mandatory traffic school
  • Mandatory community service
  • Points on your driving record
  • License suspension
  • License revocation
  • Jail sentence

Lost ticket? Call the issuing county and see if they will provide the information.  It may be necessary to appear in person in order to obtain the information.  The ticket information can also be obtained through the Illinois Secretary of State's Office.  You will need your driver's license number.  The Secretary of State's Office should be able to provide you with the citation number and the issuing county
