DuPage County Speeding Ticket Attorney
Illinois Lawyers for Fighting a Speeding Ticket
For many drivers, and especially younger drivers, the cost of a speeding ticket is treated like inevitable expense of the road, similar to a flat tire or other mechanical breakdown. You drive above the speed limit, you get pulled over, you pay your fine, and life goes on. In reality, however, a speeding ticket is much more serious, especially if you have already been cited in the last year. Cumulative moving violations can cost you your driving privileges, potentially affecting your ability to work, attend school, and continue your livelihood. At the Davi Law Group, we are prepared to help you protect your rights and your driving privileges, no matter what type of citation you may have received.
Legal Counsel for Traffic Violations in Northern Illinois
While a single speeding ticket may not seem like a very big deal, it is always best to maintain a proactive approach to legal concerns. At the Davi Law Group, we understand how important it is to take each and every citation seriously, so that little problems do not become big problems in the future. Our attorneys will advocate on your behalf throughout every step of the process, finding every opportunity to have your citation reduced or dismissed.
The law in Illinois grants authority to the Secretary of State's Office to maintain responsibility for driver's license suspensions and revocations. For drivers above the age of 21, three moving violations in the span of 12 months will result in the automatic suspension of driving privileges. The duration of the suspension is dependent upon the seriousness of the specific violations. Drivers under the age of 21 face an automatic suspension for just two moving violations in any 24-month period. Again, the seriousness of the offense and the driver's history will dictate the length of the suspension.
Responsible Speeding Ticket Defense
The seriousness of moving violations is determined by the "points" assigned to each offense by the Secretary of State's Office. A higher point value indicates a more serious offense, and a driver with more points on his or her record faces an increased suspension for a third violation. The point value of speeding violations depends upon the amount by which the speed limit was exceeded:
- 1-10 mph: 5 points;
- 11-14 mph: 15 points;
- 15-25 mph: 20 points; and
- More than 25 mph: 50, and potential charges of aggravated speeding.
