Chicagoland Speeding Tickets Lawyers

There are two types of speeding tickets in Illinois – petty speeding and aggravated speeding. While aggravated speeding typically carries more serious penalties than petty speeding, both types of speeding tickets can result in large fines, suspension of license and higher insurance rates if not handled properly.

Petty speeding (from 1 to 25 mph over the speed limit) is the usual ticket you are familiar with. Most people will just mail in payment for these types of tickets and forget them, however, there are times when defending these tickets makes sense instead of simply writing a check.

Aggravated Speeding is when you’re cited for going 26 mph or more over the speed limit. This is a criminal charge and should be taken very seriously. Mishandling an aggravated speeding charge could even result in jail time.

  • If you are traveling 26-35 miles per hour over the posted speed limit, it is classified as a Class B misdemeanor, a criminal offense punishable by up to 6 months in jail, a $1500 fine and mandatory courts costs (625 ILCS 5/11 601.5(a)).
  • If you are traveling 35 miles per hour or more over the posted speed limit, it is classified as a Class A misdemeanor, a criminal offense punishable by up to 12 months in jail, a $2500 fine and mandatory court costs (625 ILCS 5/11 601.5(b)).
  • Please provide information about your ticket, courthouse, etc.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

In addition to these possible penalties, a conviction can result in a criminal record, increased auto insurance premiums, and points on your driver’s license which can lead to a license suspension.
