About General Speeding Tickets

Speeding tickets are the single most common type of traffic offense committed on Illinois roadways. Speeding tickets up to 30 mph over the limit are considered Petty Offenses. However, once your speed is at or above 31 mph over the speed limit, you will be charged with a criminal misdemeanor. The Illinois Secretary of State has a "Points System" in which it assigns points against your record based on convictions. Generally speaking, convictions for higher speeds will cause more points to be assigned against your record. If you accumulate too many points, your Driver's License may be suspended by the Illinois Secretary of State.

Penalties for Misdemeanor Speeding Tickets

The state of Illinois penalizes habitual traffic offenders by utilizing a "points system" and assigning points for traffic offenses. If you are under the age of 21 and you receive two convictions for two separate traffic violations within a year, you could potentially have your driver's license suspended, or even revoked. If you are 21 years of age or older and you collect three traffic offense convictions within a year, you could have your driver's license suspended or revoked. The duration of the suspension or revocation is dependent upon the amount of points you have accrued against your driver's license.

Point Assignments are based on convictions and the rate of speed:

  • Speeding 1 to 10 mph over the limit: 5 points
  • Speeding 11 to 14 mph over the limit: 15 points
  • Speeding 15 to 25 mph over the limit: 20 points
  • Speeding more than 25 mph over the limit: 50 points
  • Speeding in a school zone: 20 points

First-Time Suspension

If you have not had your license suspended or revoked for the past seven years, these penalties apply:

  • 0 to 14 points-no action
  • 15 to 44 points-2-month suspension
  • 45 to 74 points-3-month suspension
  • 75 to 89 points-6-month suspension
  • 90 to 99 points-9-month suspension
  • 100 to 109 points-12-month suspension
  • 110 or more points-12-month revocation

Repeat Offenders

If your license has been suspended or revoked in the past seven years, the penalties this time around are harsher:

  • 0 to 14 points-no action
  • 15 to 44 points-4-month suspension
  • 45 to 74 points-6-month suspension
  • 75 to 109 points-12-month suspension
  • 110 or more points-12-month revocation

As you can see, it doesn't take much to find yourself exceeding the amount of points allowed on your license. That's why you need to take every speeding ticket seriously.
