Speeding Tickets

Speeding laws in Illinois are constantly changing, which can lead to confusion for motorist as to the penalties currently in place for such offenses.  As of January 1, 2014, the laws changed reducing the minimum range of speed for serious speeding, known as aggravated speeding charges, as well as increased the penalties for those offense.  Driving 26 to 34 miles over the posted speed limit, results in a Class B Misdemeanor Conviction, while driving 35 miles or more over the posted speed limit, results in a Class A Misdemeanor, if found guilty.  These aggravated speeding charges are not eligible for a sentence of court supervision, like other non misdemeanor traffic offenses.  These charges carry a mandatory conviction, high fines and the possibility of county jail time.  In order to avoid a misdemeanor conviction on your public record, which may result in job consequences, insurance premium increases, and possible suspension or revocation of driving privileges, a driver charged with a Class A or Class B Misdemeanor Speeding should have experience legal representation to reach the best outcome possible.
