Driver’s License Suspension

A lot of us like to think that driving is a necessity and something that everyone of legal age should be able to do. However, according to the law, driving is a privilege which can be taken away at any time should one commit an offense. As a professional or your average Joe or Sally, you depend on your car to take you to where you want to go within the shortest amount of time possible.

Traffic tickets can be a pain and something most of us never want to get. These are usually doled out by traffic officers for a number of reasons, with some of these being frivolous and unnecessary.

Here are some of the common reasons for getting your Illinois driver’s license suspended

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Reckless driving
  • Being deemed a ‘negligent operator’ after getting many traffic citations/tickets
  • Driving when you have a mental or physical condition which may impair vehicle operation
  • Driving without a seatbelt
  • Improper lane usage
  • Leaving the scene of an accident such as in the case of a hit and run accident
  • Driving without driver’s insurance
  • Running a red light
  • Fleeing and eluding
  • Following too closely
  • Passing a school bus
  • Failure to signal
  • Texting while driving

3 Strikes Traffic Ticket Law in Illinois

According to Illinois law, it only takes 3 traffic tickets and pleading guilty to them to have a conviction on your record as well as have your driving license taken away. In addition, most people just want it over and done with and prefer paying the fine by mail and admitting guilt in the same manner.

However, this may come to haunt you later in life and make it hard to get employment clearance or even rent a place if it’s discovered that you have any kind of record. In addition, you may face extra fines, an increase in your insurance premiums or have your license taken away regardless. This is why we insist on you getting in touch with us before doing anything so we can help you expunge any would-be blemishes off your record.

If you have a traffic violation citation in Illinois, your best bet at retaining your license and record-free status lies in contacting Edwin Reyes Law for your free and confidential consultation. Remember, the longer you wait, the more complicated these cases will turn out to be. Please give us a call today on 312-220-7000 for fast and efficient legal help. Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you.
