Whether you are a busy single mother late to work, a young driver trying to get home before sunset, or feeling under-the-weather and heading for the doctor's office, an aggravated speeding offense can catch you unaware. Although such oversights can affect us all, an Illinois aggravated or excessive speeding offense can carry consequences far beyond those faced by a lesser speeding ticket. If you have been charged with an aggravated speeding offense, it is important to contact an experienced law firm to discuss the potential impact of your case.

Aggravated Speeding Carries Controversial Consequences

Aggravated speeding is defined by Illinois law as two separate misdemeanors: either traveling 26 to 34 miles per hour above the posted speed limit, or traveling 35 miles per hour or more above the posted limit. In the first case, you may be charged with a Class B misdemeanor, and in the second, a Class A misdemeanor, both of which are criminal offenses and carry the potential for incarceration.

Aggravated or excessive speeding and its penalties should not be confused with the penalties associated with normal "speeding," which is defined as simply operating a vehicle above the posted speed limit. If you are only charged with speeding, you are not subject to potential incarceration. However, if you are charged with aggravated speeding and plead guilty, you will likely be convicted of a criminal misdemeanor.

Helping Those Faced with Excessive Speeding Charges in Naperville

Due to recent legal challenges the Illinois aggravated/excessive speeding law has faced and the potential severity of the consequences, you should have your case thoroughly reviewed by an experienced Illinois attorney. Conviction of an aggravated speeding offense in Illinois can carry the following consequences:

  • Up to one year in prison
  • Up to a $2,500 fine
  • Suspension, revocation, or cancellation of your license
  • Negative points on your driving record
  • Court and administrative costs
