What To Do If You Got a Illinois Speeding Ticket

If you get a speeding ticket, there are several important things to remember. The first is to be polite to the officer. Manners are everything when dealing with the police, and it only takes a few ill-chosen words on your part to make matters infinitely worse than they have to be. Go ahead and sign the ticket. It's not an admission of guilt, just a confirmation that you have been informed of the charges against you. When you get home, take a look at the back of the ticket. It should list the court information and your options for dealing with the ticket. Then, you can decide how you want to plead and how you want to deal with the charges.

Whatever you do, don't ignore the ticket. Ignoring it will not make it go away. Rather, it will increase the amount of your fine. You could also have your driver's license suspended for failure to pay or failure to appear.
