Running a red light can cause a serious accident resulting in injury or even death to driver and passengers involved in the traffic crash. Chicago and Illinois law enforcement officials take these traffic offenses seriously. Many people receive tickets for running red lights in Chicago and if you have experienced this first hand you may be surprised to find out that it is possible to fight this offense. Running a red light or a stop sign can result in fines and a conviction on your license, which in turn can lead to increased auto insurance premiums. Unless your red light violation is payable to the “Chicago Department of Revenue”, and thus not a moving violation, resist the initial urge to just pay the ticket because the quick fix is not necessarily the best option in this situation.
