DUI – Driving Under Influence

As far as Driving Under Influence is concerned, Illinois law treats such cases very seriously. Depending on whether it was your first offence or relapse, you can have your driving license suspended for anywhere between three months and two years. Facing such situation, you should immediately contact a DUI lawyer in Chicago, who can represent you in informal or formal hearing at Department of Motor Vehicles, regarding reinstatement of your driving license.

Driving without permits / fines

 

Exceeding speed limit, driving without belts fastened, using phone while driving or simply driving without appropriate permits may result in a fine. Such punishment doesn’t sound acute – particularly compared to driver’s license suspension or custodial sentence. Each ticket will be noted on your driving record, which is of uttermost importance for commercial drivers during job search as well as getting insurance quotes. Moreover, any unpaid tickets may be reflected on your criminal record . To avoid unpleasant surprises in the future you should contact an attorney, who specializes in traffic law.
