Did you get a ticket for speeding? Not a big deal, right? You pay the fine and move on. No. The enforcement of the rules of the road is stricter than ever. Taking care of the small mistakes now before they become big problems.
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 Will County traffic violations lawyer about your tickets.
It is possible to receive court supervision on two moving violation tickets in a 12-month period. Pleading guilty to a third ticket may cause you to have a conviction on your record. If you are over 21 years old, three convictions received in a 12 month period will result in a suspended license. By contacting a Will County traffic tickets lawyer early on, you may be able to avoid a conviction, thereby avoiding a loss of driving privileges.
If you are under 21, only two convictions for moving violations in a 24-month period will result in a suspended license.
If you have received a notice of license suspension, act quickly. Contact our traffic violations lawyers immediately. It may be possible to undo the damage if you act immediately even after the suspension takes effect.
The biggest mistake you may make is just paying the fine by mail. Call us first. If it seems appropriate for you to mail in your plea of guilty and pay the fine, we will tell you.
