traffic-offenseA ticket may seem like a small, albeit costly and frustrating thing, but Illinois traffic violation laws are quite strict and can result in the loss of your driving privileges.

For most traffic tickets in Illinois, the only thing required to convict an individual of the offense is that they in fact committed the act. No intent needs to be demonstrated. These types of violations include speeding, overdue parking meters, not using turn signals and parking in a handicapped zone without authorization. Violations are also classified by whether the vehicle was in motion at the time of the accident. A moving violation could include speeding, running a red light, driving without a seat belt and drunk driving. Non-moving violations include illegal parking, driving with an invalid vehicle registration, having expired license plates and leaving a vehicle unattended and running.

While the majority of traffic violations require paying a fine between $50-$350, more serious offenses can carry higher fines and or/imprisonment. If you receive two moving violations within a 12-month period, you could receive court supervision. A third ticket may cause you to have a conviction on your record, and your driving privileges will be suspended.
