Everyone has had a traffic ticket. Most of the time you pay a small fine and forget about it. The trouble is when it becomes a habit. Police and prosecutors see such offenses as disregard for the law, and the penalties will get more severe with each incident.
Traffic Tickets Can Result in Serious Ramifications
The state views driving on public roads as a privilege, not a right. Therefore it demands compliance with countless rules and regulations. You will lose your driving privileges at some point. At first it is just an increase in your insurance rates. It could end with revocation of your driver's license or even jail time. If your child is under the age of 21, 2 tickets in any 24-month period will result in a suspension of your child's driving privileges.

You Could Lose Your Driving Privileges

It is urgent that you contact one of our experienced DuPage County traffic violation attorneys as soon as possible. If you haven't yet been charged, we may be able to prevent charges from being filed. Do not make a statement to police under any circumstances without first consulting a lawyer. Do not be convinced that you will get a better deal, or will talk your way out of a ticket. Police officers know how to make a case against you, and are hoping you say things to them that will help convict you in a court of law. Don't help the officer make a case against you, politely decline to talk to the officer and request an attorney be present for you.
