Illinois takes the safety of its citizens on the highways very seriously, and will prosecute fully, cases that come before its traffic courts. Few people think of a ticket or citation as a criminal charge that can have serious consequences, but it can. Mailing in a fine for a ticket may be convenient and less troublesome, but it usually is not a good idea. If you pay a ticket, you are acknowledging guilt. The infraction goes on your driving record, and repeat driving violations lead to increased penalties.
If you have a ticket or are arrested for a serious traffic offense, and want to avoid serious consequences, it is best to retain the services of a traffic violations attorney as soon as possible. The reliable and affordable team of lawyers at Mulyk, Laho, & Mack, LLC handles a wide range of traffic violations, including moving and non-moving violations, commercial driver's license (CDL) offenses, and accident-related and criminal offenses, for clients throughout the communities in and around Chicago and DuPage County.
Traffic Violations Attorneys Serve Glen Ellyn and Oak Brook
There is a long list of traffic violations that could threaten your driving record, from the violent felony of causing serious bodily injury while driving under the influence (DUI) and reckless driving, to the common misdemeanor charge of running a stop sign and failing to yield the right of way, and the not so expected offense of following too closely or failing to yield to a funeral procession. When you are found guilty of a traffic offense, either by sending in a fine for a ticket, or through a conviction in traffic court, you are subject to:
- Being reported to the Illinois Driver Services Department for a conviction on a moving violation;
- Getting points on your driving record with possible license suspension or revocation;
- Potential for increase in insurance rates with increased points;
- Loss of a driving-related job;
- High fines, supervision, or incarceration.
