Speeding Ticket

I got a speeding ticket on I-88 on Sunday, 90mph in a 65mph. I'm not that mad b'cos I deserve it. The cop took my license away and told me that I could get it back from the Kane County Clerk's office. How many days does it take for my license to be available at the Clerk's office? Do you guys know?

Thanks!

My mom works at the Kane County Clerk's office. Sorry, but she won't be able to get you out of it. I have tried.

I'm leaving right now to go to the Drivers' License Facility to get my State Id.

How much does it cost to take those Traffic lessons so that the ticket doesn't go on my record?

This is my 2nd ticket and got the first ticket about 2.5 years ago. Do you guys think that I could go to the court and get a court supervision for six months or will the judge throw the ticket on my face (90 on 60)?

I thought you always went the speed limit John??? How can an instructor of a safety course lose his license? How ironic! Don't you think??

You may want to get a lawyer and go to court. However, there's at least one judge in Kane Co. that doesn't give supervision for more than 20 over unless you can work a deal with the prosecutor. The lawyer gives you better negotiating position.

I know a good attorney in Kane Co. but I don't know if he does traffic offenses or what he would charge.

TaxMan, I got pulled over in April for a $75 ticket in Lombard and I just went to the police station and paid the fine the same day and got it back again.

Court supervision is for people who have gone violation free for a 12 month period, so yeah, you qualify for it. Typically they give you the pamphlet to apply for it with the citation...or they do in Lombard.

if you didn't get the pamphlet with the ticket, you wouldn't be able to get supervision by mail in (obviously). i too, would recommend you get a lawyer and go to court.

A while back I was on supervision in McHenry county, got a ticket in Cook (Barrington Hills), went to court and watched. The Judge told everyone that if they were already on supervision they could not ask for supervision, and if they did ask the fine would be greater, and since you need to admit guilt as part of asking for supervision, you would then have admitted to guilt. The Judge would call a name, you say here and stand up, the prosecuter would look at a computer printout and shake yes (you already had a ticket) or no (you don't have a ticket in 6 months). He shook his head no so I knew they didn't know I was already on supervision in McHenry. Judge asked how I pleaded, I asked for supervision and got it. I was still on supervision in McHenry county.

I was on my bike going East on I-88.

The cop was going West on I-88, he ran through the ditch (median) to get on this side and he broke his bumper, it was flapping when I saw him on my rearview mirror. I thought he was going to arrest me since he was so pissed that his car got damaged.

IMO, thats a bit extreme. to give you a $95 ticket, he probably did a couple of hundred dollars worth of damage to car.

Sweet, that what he gets for making an illegal U-Turn, and illegally merging onto a highway. Guess who paid to have that car fixed too.

Court supervision is specific to the county. The counties also dont not communicate with each other.

It may well be that your confusion is based upon this discussion being about Illinois law. Thus the name Chicago in the name of this site.
