Should I Get a Lawyer for Speeding?

If you are issued a speeding ticket in Chicago or Illinois in general, it is advisable to consult the services of an attorney immediately. In most cases, an experienced lawyer will know what approach to use to improve the chances of obtaining a favorable outcome. Thorough knowledge of the law is valuable when defending your case and trying to dismiss your speeding ticket. When needed, lawyers can also help in plea bargaining and negotiations to achieve the best possible result. 

Illinois Speeding Tickets

In Illinois, there are two major laws; absolute limits and basic speeding laws. Absolute speed limits depend on the road type and stipulated rules. For instance, the absolute speed limit on interstate highways is 70 miles per hour, while in an urban district is 30 miles per hour. If you drive faster than the absolute speed limit, you have violated the speed laws. Basic speeding laws forbid drivers from driving at a speed greater than what is considered reasonable. Drivers should drive at a reasonable and safe speed.

The penalties for an Illinois speeding ticket depend on the type of speeding law and circumstances. But typically, possible penalties and fines for speed in Illinois include:

  • Fine of up to $ 164 for 1-25 miles/hour above the speed limit if the conviction is paid by mail ( NEVER DO IT) and fines of up to $ 250-300 for supervision if the conviction is handled in court ( MOST RECOMMENDED).
  • Up to 6 months in jail and up to $ 1,500 fines for 26-34 miles/hour above the speed limit.
  • Up to one year in jail and up to $ 2,500 fines for 35miles/hour or more above the speed limit.
  • Up to $150 fines for any speeding violation in a school zone for the first offense and up to $300 penalties for the second or subsequent offenses.

In Illinois, exceeding the speed limit of 26 miles/hour or more is considered a misdemeanor, and you can be arrested. Driving at a speed between 26-34 miles/hour above the speed limit is classified as a Class B misdemeanor, and you can be convicted for up to 6 months and up to $1,500 in fines.
