The basic speeding law of Illinois prohibits driving at a speed that is “greater than is reasonable and proper with regard to traffic conditions and the use of the highway, or endangers the safety of any person or property.” In other words, motorists must always drive at a safe speed, which will vary depending on the circumstances, such as a time of day and weather.
While most people are content to pay the fines of a speeding ticket, drivers can have legal recourse in some instances. Illinois roadways enforce the speed limit at 55 miles an hour, but posted speed limits often change quickly without the driver knowing in time. That’s why an experienced traffic attorney can help you navigate the validity of your ticket.
If you have been charged with speeding, drag racing, driving with a suspended or revoked license, drunken driving/DUI, failure to yield, driving too fast for conditions, school and bus violations, texting while driving, reckless driving, improper lane usage, or red light or stop sign violations in Rockford, Machesney Park, Loves Park or elsewhere in Winnebago and Boone counties, contact the Law Office of Paul M. Marriett today for a free traffic violation consultation.
The Law Office of Paul M. Marriett is a Rockford-based legal firm that handles all traffic-related matters. In many cases, simply obtaining legal counsel causes the offer from the State to change dramatically because the State knows that there are many traffic offenders to get through, and if one attorney files enough discovery motions and wants to fight such a ticket, it can be quite a headache for them.
If you retain the Law Office of Paul M. Marriett, we will first seek to have your case dismissed by probing all available discovery to see whether the evidence against you can sustain the charge levied against you. If it does look like we can’t beat the charge, we can negotiate a favorable plea to your traffic offense where you can obtain court supervision for the offense and also a potentially lower assessed fine.
