Legal Answers
289 Questions Answered

Q. i got pulled over today and the officer took my license and said that he would bring my license to my house.
A: When an officer issues a ticket he or she will provide with a physical ticket advising you of the offense, etc. It does not sound like you were given a ticket. I’m guessing it has to do with your age? Maybe the officer wants to bring your license to your home to speak with your parents. It may be a warning rather than a ticket. Hard to say.
Q. Pulled over by sheriff in Illinois no physical ticket was presented to me. 3 months later ticket from Missouri pops
A: The ticket says it was issued in Missouri? You would need to contact an attorney in Missouri to review the ticket - find someone local that practices in that specific county. At this point, a motion may need to be filed to contest the citation.
Q. Was pulled over and given a court date for not having an up to date insurance but it was up to date?
A: It is certainly frustrating that the officer wasn't more patient with you, but not an uncommon situation. The ticket will be dismissed in court if you provide the proof of insurance on your court date.
Q. I have a hearing to get my license back and I'm on supervision do I admit to supervision or can I say no I have not been
A: They will likely be aware of the supervision regardless, better not to lie.
Q. I have a CDL and got a speeding ticket over 18
A: Because of your CDL, the only way to keep a ticket off your record is by beating it at trial or having the ticket amended to a non-moving violation. Court supervision will not keep the ticket off of your record. If you have a school bus permit, Speeding 15 or more over the limit, even in your personal vehicle will count against you as a serious violation. You are encouraged to find legal representation to ensure the matter is handled properly in court.
Q. I got pulled over for going 81 in a 50. Instead of arresting me and towing my car, the cop gave me a ticket and court,
A: Speeding 26-34 mph over the limit (often referred to as aggravated speeding) is a Class B misdemeanor under Illinois law. Technically, the maximum penalty is 6 months in jail and a $1,500 fine. However, given that this is your first ticket, the goal would be to reduce the offense and keep it off of your public record. You are not facing a license suspension. An attorney can certainly assist.
Q. Promise to comply? (Lake County, IL)
A: You likely have the option to pay the ticket for a conviction, complete traffic school to keep the offense off of your public record, or appear in court to contest the ticket (or request supervision to keep the ticket off of your record and likely avoid traffic school - an attorney can handle this on your behalf). Promise to comply essentially means that you will respond to the ticket within the required time or appear in court on the scheduled court date.
Q. Had taking a defensive driving course in Texas 8 months ago received for a speeding ticket.
A: It depends if Texas will recognize court supervision from Illinois. The offense is still supposed to be reported back to your home state, even though under Illinois law, the traffic school would not count as a conviction (and not show up on your public record in Illinois). It is then up to your home state whether to to put the offense on your record.
Q. Do I have to pay court fines before a "hold" is lifted off my license? So I can apply for one in a new state?
A: Unfortunately, they will not clear the hold until you receive a favorable decision from the Secretary of State and pay off the fines. You would need to file a motion to re-open the case and appear back in court to have any chance to reduce the fines, which would be very difficult at this point.
