DuPage County Traffic Violation Lawyer
Attorney for Traffic Tickets in Oak Brook, Wheaton, and Throughout Illinois
When you are pulled over and receive a ticket, your first thought may be to pay the fine and move on. However, you should reconsider paying the ticket without going to court and speak with an experienced traffic ticket and violations lawyer. When you pay your ticket without contesting the charges, you are telling the court you are guilty. Police officers typically tell people that if they just send in the ticket, it will not go on their record. This is not true. If you send in your ticket and pay the fine, even court supervision will go on your record. It can be used against you later, and if you receive too many traffic tickets or moving violations, you can have your driver’s license suspended or revoked without the ability to fight the suspension or revocation.

Traffic Tickets and Moving Violations
Traffic tickets go beyond just being pulled over if a police officer believes you are speeding and decides to give you a ticket. Receiving a traffic ticket or moving violation also includes, but is not limited to:
- Parking and toll violations,
- Red light camera violation,
- Failure to appear in court,
- Texting while driving, and
- Driving under the influence.
If you receive a ticket, you should not just pay the fine without contesting the charges. Receiving a traffic ticket or moving violation can have a negative impact on your insurance premiums and ability to drive yourself anywhere. Receiving too many tickets may result in having your license taken away and can cause your insurance company to raise your insurance rates or drop you altogether. If you drive for a living, having your license suspended or revoked is detrimental to being able to keep your job and pay your expenses. Having a graduated license or being a professional driver will lead to harsher punishments, in addition to being convicted of a moving violation or other traffic tickets.
Appearing before a judge may help avoid some or all of the negative consequences of receiving a ticket or moving violation. In some cases, you can have the charges dropped without penalty, or sometimes a conviction can be avoided by taking a driver’s education course or completing community service. If the charges are dropped, you will not have to pay any fines or court fees.
