If you or anyone you know has received traffic tickets Illinois in or any other State, you would be aware of the consequences – fines, driving school, community service, points on your record, increased insurance premium, and if the offense is serious, even prison time.
If you were speeding just a little, say 5 miles over the limit, and it’s your first time, you may be let off lightly; even with a warning, if you’re lucky. But if you go say 20 or 30 over, and you’re a repeat offender, you can be sure that the officer is not going to feel kind; you will be ticketed and cited a pretty hefty fine, and have to face other harsh penalties.
If you’re pulled over, take care to
Pull over as soon as you can do so safely
Stay inside and keep your hands on the wheel
Be polite to the officer and don’t admit guilt
Hand over documents asked for
Drive off only after the officer leaves
This will create a good impression on the officer and they may be inclined to be lenient; also, if you go to court, your good behaviour will help you.
The total cost of your speeding ticket could very well run into thousands of dollars, as, the offender has to shell out dough for the driving school, court fees, your increased premiums, and so on.
