Traffic Offenses

Traffic tickets pose consequences far beyond fines. Even a single moving violation ticket can result in an 18 percent increase in your auto insurance rates.

Two tickets can result in a 34 percent increase. If you have three moving violations in a 12-month period, your Illinois driver's license can be suspended. If you are under the age of 21, two moving violations in a two-year period will result in the suspension of your license.

The cost of hiring a lawyer to defend you may be far less than the added insurance costs and the limitations you face should your driver's license be suspended.

At Patel Law, PC, our Champaign-Urbana criminal defense legal team brings years of experience into defending clients who receive traffic tickets. Having served clients in Champaign, Vermilion and Macon Counties, we have encountered a number of traffic offenses and have developed the well-rounded skills to handle your case. We can provide assistance for all moving violations, including:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to stop
  • Violation of traffic device
  • Failure to reduce speed, resulting in an accident
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving on suspended license
  • DUI
  • Leaving the scene (hit and run)

While we always focus our efforts on having charges fully dismissed, we are also often able to reduce traffic tickets to non-moving violations that will not affect your insurance rates and premiums, or your driver's license. We offer free case evaluations so that you can learn more about the potential of your unique case.
