Traffic Tickets & Offenses Attorneys
Traffic Ticket & Offense Lawyers Serving Kane, Kendall & DeKalb Counties
When it comes to modern society, it is hard to imagine making it through your daily life without a driver’s license. This is not hyperbole, either: in certain parts of the country, it would be almost impossible to make it through your daily life without being able to drive, especially if you have a commute to work and no comprehensive public transportation available to get you back and forth. That is one of the reasons why it is so important to take traffic tickets and offenses seriously.
Many people tend to think that traffic offenses are minor issues. Unfortunately, this is not the best way to approach the situation. In fact, this might be the absolute worst way to approach the issue of settling traffic offenses and addressing traffic tickets. While you might be able to pay off manor tickets with little trouble, what happens when you end up with multiple tickets and the threat of a ton of points being added to your license? Should you accrue too many points on your license or too many traffic violations within a certain time frame, it is not at all impossible to lose your license. Should those traffic violations be criminal in nature, you will not even have the choice to pay a ticket and accept those points on your license – you will have no choice but to go through the court system and plead one way or another, receive your punishment, and then complete whatever program or punishment the judge deems is fair.
At Van Der Snick Law Firm, LTD we understand that everyone makes mistakes. We strive to serve our clients without judgment. We provide expert service and work with you to help determine the best options possible in order to ensure that you keep your license and get through the consequences as quickly as possible. Do not hesitate to reach out to experienced professionals who can help ensure that you present the most effective defense available. Waiting could lead to increased insurance premiums, costly fines, or even the suspension of your license.
There is a wide array of consequences that arise from traffic violations. You could find yourself facing any of the following:
- Increased risk of being found guilty should you end up in civil court over a traffic related offense
- Increased insurance premiums
- Hefty fines
- A high number of points on your license
- Jail time, should you end up with misdemeanor or felony traffic violation
- The loss of your CDL, even if the traffic offense was committed using your regular vehicle and your standard operator’s license
- The suspension or revocation of your standard operator’s license
These are not light consequences, as you can see. In order to help avoid them, or as many of them as possible, you should reach out to a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with traffic offenses. Note that you do not have to wait until you end up with a serious issue to contact an attorney. In fact, you might do better to hire one even when you are facing your first violation. An experienced attorney can help you understand the issues you are facing as well as the choices you have at your disposal to fix the problem and ensure that you stay on the right side of the law.
Should you find yourself facing multiple charges and tickets, then you might be accused of one or more of the following.
These are among the most common traffic offenses and tickets in Illinois:
- Aggressive driving
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
- Habitual traffic violations
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Reckless driving
Are you facing any of the above, or maybe even something different? Remember that these violations and tickets can all result in increased points being placed on your license. This issue is a serious one because you might eventually find yourself with a suspended license due to the accumulation of too many of them. Additionally, remember that drivers with many points on their licenses are known as “high risk” drivers to insurance companies. This leads to insurance premiums that are much higher than they would otherwise be.
