Belleville, Illinois Traffic Lawyer

Drivers that have been charged with a traffic violation or offense should hire a Belleville traffic lawyer to represent them in traffic court. A simple speeding ticket is more than just a one-off fine and can result in a 27% increase in insurance costs for three to five years.

Additional tickets add to these costs too.

If you get a traffic ticket, the steps you take afterward can reduce fines, penalties and may even help you negate higher insurance costs.


I Got A Traffic Ticket — What Do I Do Now?

Illinois drivers can lose their license for a traffic ticket. If you meet any of the following criteria, you may lose your license:

  • This is your 3rd ticket in 12 months – if you’re over 21
  • This is your 2nd ticket in two years – if you’re under 21

If you were caught driving 26 MPH or more over the speed limit, you’ll also be facing misdemeanor charges resulting in a conviction and criminal record. Section 625 ILCS 5/11-601.5 outlines when a Class B or Class A misdemeanor is assessed.

  • 26 – 34 MPH over the limit – Class B misdemeanor
  • 35+ MPH over the limit – Class A misdemeanor

A person with a perfect driving record will automatically lose their license if they are convicted of passing a stopped school bus when its red lights are flashing.

Tickets also come with fines, penalties, and long-term insurance rate increases. While a driver may try and pay off a simple ticket just to get it over with, what seems like the easiest way to resolve the matter can sometimes cost you far more in the long run. It is essential for you to contact an experienced Belleville Traffic Lawyer to make sure your rights are protected and you know ALL of your options and their ramifications.

Drivers facing license suspension should call a lawyer immediately to reduce their risk of suspension and potential misdemeanor charges.
