The Potential Consequences Of An Aggravated Speeding Charge
Aggravated speeding is a type of traffic offense that our team regularly handles. In Illinois, speeding violations range from petty offenses to misdemeanor aggravated speeding charges. Aggravated speeding convictions can result in a maximum penalty of 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Depending on how fast you are driving, you could be charged with either a Class A or Class B misdemeanor.
If you are caught driving 26 mph over the speed limit, you will be charged with a Class B misdemeanor for which you could face up to 6 months in jail and a $1,500 fine. If you are caught driving 35 mph or more above the speed limit, you will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor and will face up to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine.
In addition to criminal penalties, a conviction for aggravated speeding will result in 50 points being assigned to your driving record. If you receive numerous citations resulting in convictions within a 12-month period, the Secretary of State will add up the points on your record and you will potentially face suspension of your driver’s license.
