Will County IL Traffic Ticket Attorneys
Defending Charges of Speeding, Texting and Cell Use On the I-355 Corridor
Traffic violations are usually dealt with on the municipal level, which is the lowest level of courts in Will County. Under some circumstances, though, some traffic violations cases may be heard in the higher circuit courts. Traffic offenses usually violate civil ordinances, not state laws. However this type of offense may still carry consequences similar to criminal charges.
Though traffic violations and citations are often less serious than other criminal charges, sometimes penalties arising from traffic convictions can negatively impact many aspects of your life. Even if you believe your traffic violation is minor, you should always contact an experienced Will County traffic violations attorney to discuss your case and go over your possible options.
Joliet Traffic Lawyers
There are many possible traffic violations in Joliet, ranging from simply failing to use a turn signal to more serious offenses like fleeing and evading a police officer in your car. Some of the most common traffic violations include:
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Driving without insurance
- Driving without a license
- Driving on a revoked or suspended license
- Reckless driving
All of these offenses can result in costly fines and points against your license. While paying a traffic ticket may seem like a minor inconvenience to some, the points from multiple violations may quickly add up and result in loss of your license. In addition, certain violations are considered to be dangerous enough that a conviction may result in immediate loss of your license, regardless of prior offenses.
For example, if you are convicted of street racing or illegally passing a school bus, you will lose your license for a period of time, even if it is your first offense. If you lose your license, even for a short period of time, you will lose your ability to drive freely and may even jeopardize jobs that require you to hold a valid driver’s license.
