Consequences of Traffic Violations
Most traffic violations are lesser offenses that are handled informally by the Illinois Secretary of State. Even these lesser offenses, however, can be costly if they are not handled properly. Moving violations can result in expensive fines, points on your license, and even license suspension or revocation. Three convictions for moving violations within a 12-month period will result in the suspension of your driver's license, and the length of the suspension will depend on the number of points on your record. For drivers who are under 21, two moving violation convictions in a 24-month period will trigger a license suspension. Additionally, traffic violations can cause your insurance premiums to increase significantly.
More serious traffic offenses, such as those involving injury to a person or destruction of property, often result in criminal charges. The penalties for these charges can involve significant jail time and costly fines.
