speeding ticket questions

Please keep this thread on topic!!!!!

Last night i got a speeding ticket. The police officer DID NOT use any radar, but paced my car, and wrote me a ticket for going 60 in a 45...


heres my question to you guys...

in illinois, drivers under 21 cannot recieve more than one moving violation in a span of two years. so only one ticket is allowed in a two year period..

I have a ticket from febuary 21st of 2007, that i applied for sourt supervision for but was denied. so that one went on record...

my question to you guys, is should i try to go for court supervision on this ticket?

on the packet the officer gave me it says that you qualify for supervision if you havnt had any tickets or been on court supervision in the past year...


well, ive got about a three week gap, because i got the first ticket on 2-21-2007, and i got this ticket on 1-27-08..

so basically, if i dont get supervision on this ticket, ill get my liscense suspended.... which isnt good.. ive already had 2 suspesnions and gotten out of both of them... and i dont want to have to go through all the bs again..


so should i just mail in the ticket, asking for court supervision? or should i wait for a court date, and try to get the ticket wiped? or should i just go to court and ask for supervision there????

i dunno what to do

i know that when i got a ticket in illinois last year they officer said that there was a class that could be taken to avoid any points or anything like that. he said it would just be a fine. or you can go to court and try to plead to a lesser charge. I always go to court with my tickets. in most cases they will let you off with just a fine and nothing will go on your record

Yes you should do supervision...and if your denied look in to a traffic class. I have done that as well. If you take the class and pass (3hrs a day 4 saturday's) then they will drop it.

yea, ive already had two suspensions and have already taken the traffic court...

i know ill get denied court supervision because i got a ticket 11 months ago, and to meet supervision requirements i need to be ticket free for 12 months...


my biggest thing is i dont want to loose my liscense, and since im under 21 the law is MUCH more strict on that

wow, you have a lot of tickets matt, i know you are happy you got your car back, but damn you need to keep it easy on the throttle and you wouldnt be in this situation. its a live and learn thing that people need to learn as they get older and wiser, i learned my lesson after getting 3 tickets in 2 years, 2 speedings and a careless, thank god the careless is now dropped, and this summer my last speeding gets dropped as well, and since then ive been easy on the throttle, and been cautious and watching out for cops when i do hit the freeways

best bet is to try for a court hearing, pray the cop doesnt show up, or even talk with the magistrate or judge, and try to get supervision again, but if thery look up your file they prolly wont give it to you
