Traffic Law Under Illinois Motor Vehicle Act
A traffic violation can be as minor as failing to signal when changing lanes or as serious as reckless endangerment. By law, these infractions are considered criminal offenses because they put people in danger.
Don't Wait to Take Action
If you were recently cited for a traffic violation such as DUI or speeding, it’s important that you take legal action as soon as possible. While one traffic infraction may not seem like a big deal, if you’re found guilty of committing such a violation, you may face monetary fines and in some cases, jail time. Additionally, violations may result in the loss of your driver’s license.
