Fighting Illinois Traffic Tickets
Because traffic tickets in Illinois are commonplace, people often believe that traffic tickets are not important. For this reason, most do not even pause to consider that they can fight, and probably should. Instead, they simply accept it by paying the fine or enrolling in traffic safety school. There are better options to consider. By paying the fine, you are accepting guilt, and a conviction. If you qualify for and accept traffic school, you give up the chance for a dismissal, acquittal or supervision without a traffic school. Failure to challenge a traffic ticket in Illinois courts can later lead to serious difficulties with insurance as well as license suspension.
In fact, a conviction stays on your record as a blemish. It is something that can be used against you in the future and could even affect your daily life. For example, if you received a speeding ticket in Illinois or if you were accused of running a red light, the effects on your insurance rates could be devastating, and if you unexpectedly rack up more than one ticket within a relatively short time, you could find your driver's license suspended.
Hiring an Illinois traffic ticket attorney could make all the difference in your future.
