DuPage County Speeding Defense Attorneys

Speeding Ticket Defense Lawyers in St. Charles, Bloomingdale, and Naperville

In Illinois, each time you are convicted of a moving violation, points are added to your driving record. The accumulation of points can lead to serious consequences, such as heavy fines, higher insurance rates, loss of driving privileges, mandatory driver improvement courses, and community service. Though speeding may seem like a minor offense, each speeding conviction brings you closer to driver's license suspension and other adverse consequences. If you have recently been cited for speeding or any other moving violation, it is in your best interest to speak with an experienced traffic violation attorney, so you understand your options.

Point System for Speeding in Illinois

Depending on the specific offense, a certain number of points are added to your driving record for each speeding conviction. They are as follows:

  • Speeding in a School Zone or Construction Zone: 20 Points
  • Aggravated Speeding in a School Zone or Construction Zone: 55 points
  • Driving Up to 10 MPH Over the Speed Limit: 5 Points
  • Driving Up to 11-14 MPH Over the Speed Limit: 15 Points
  • Driving Up to 15-25 MPH Over the Speed Limit: 20 Points
  • Driving 25 MPH (or Higher) Over the Speed Limit: 50 Points
  • Speeding Too Fast for Conditions: 10 points

Three or more speeding offenses or other traffic violations that are committed within a 12-month period will result in the suspension or revocation of your driver's license. The length of the suspension or revocation will depend on the total number of points accumulated on your record.

Harsher Penalties for Aggravated Speeding

The point system is used to determine if your driver’s license will be suspended or revoked, and for how long. However, there are other penalties you can incur for more serious speeding violations. Under Illinois law, if you are driving between 26 MPH and 35 MPH above the speed limit, it is a Class B Misdemeanor, punishable by fines up to $1,500 and up to six months in county jail. Driving 35 MPH (or more) over the speed limit is a Class A Misdemeanor, punishable by fines up to $2,500 and up to one year in county jail.
