Speeding In School Zone

On school days when school children are present and so close that a potential hazard exists, no person shall drive at a speed in excess of 20 mph.  (625 ILCS 5/11-605).

Speeding 1-24mph over is a Petty Offense.  The fine for a first offense is $150.  The fine for a second or subsequent offense is $300.  Speeding 25-34mph over is a Class B Misdemeanor.  Speeding 35mph over is a Class C Misdemeanor.  

This offense IS NOT eligible for Court Supervision.  If you are found guilty or plead guilty to this offense, the only available sentence a Judge can give is a conviction.  A conviction will go on your driving record and 20 points will be assigned. 

I will fight hard to keep a conviction off of your record.  I have years of success in defending these case and winning at trial.
