Traffic Law Attorney in Schaumburg, IL

An Experienced Traffic Attorney Can Help Resolve Your Case in the Chicagoland Area

Speeding tickets and similar infractions may be common, but that doesn’t mean they should be taken lightly. Paying a ticket often seems like the fastest and easiest resolution, but doing so is the equivalent of a guilty plea. 

Three convictions for traffic violations will result in a mandatory suspension of your driver’s license. Too many guilty traffic violations can easily turn into hefty fines, missed work, raised auto insurance rates, and even jail time.

If you were given a traffic ticket in Schaumburg or anywhere in the Chicagoland Area, call the Law Office of Gregory Walker at (312) 604-2250 for a free initial consultation.

Traffic Penalties in Illinois

If you are found guilty of 3 moving violations within a 12-month period, the State of Illinois can suspend your driving privileges for up to 6 months.

Traffic crimes range in severity from Class A misdemeanors to minor infractions:

  • Class A Misdemeanors: These are the most serious traffic offenses, when a driver speeds 35 mph or more over the posted speed limit or is arrested for DUI, reckless driving, or another serious offense.  
  • Class B Misdemeanors: These charges are less severe than Class A traffic misdemeanor. You will be charged with a Class B misdemeanor for driving with an expired license or driving between 26 and 35 mph over the posted speed limit. A conviction is punishable by a fine of up to $1,500.
  • Violations: These are broadly categorized into moving and non-moving violations. Moving violations are given for speeding, tailgating, texting while driving, and similar offenses. Non-moving violations are given when the car is stopped, such as parking near a fire hydrant.

Gregory Walker Can Help You with Your Speeding Ticket Defense

Challenging your tickets in court now rather than later can stop them from snowballing into much bigger problems down the road. Many residents of Illinois don't know their license has been suspended until after they've been arrested, which is why it is vital that you never simply forget about a ticket.
