Arlington Heights Misdemeanor Speeding Attorney

Barrington Traffic Violation Lawyer for Class A and B Speeding Tickets

Class A Misdemeanor Speeding in Illinois

In Illinois, speeding in excess of 25 miles per hour over the posted speed limit is a criminal act, which can be charged and prosecuted as a misdemeanor. Penalties for a conviction — including pleading guilty — include large fines and potential jail time.

Class B Misdemeanor Speeding in Illinois

Drivers ticketed for speeding betewen 26 and 35 miles per hour over the posted limit are subject to being charged with a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 6 months in jail, a fine of up to $1,500, or both. Speeding 36 miles per hour or more over the posted limit may be charged as a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to one year in jail, a fine of up to $2,500, or both

In addition to the heavy fine and penalties for excessive speeding, a misdemeanor conviction will remain on your criminal record until you actively pursue efforts to expunge it, often at high cost in time, money and energy.

Fortunately, to date, actual charges and convictions for misdemeanor speeding in the Greater Chicago metro region are unusual, because local prosecutors in Cook County, DuPage County, and Lake County have shown a willingness to work with experienced Illinois traffic ticket defense attorneys.
