What Is The School Zone Speeding Law?
Illinois law provides that the speed limit in a school zone is 20 miles per hour on school days when children are present between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. A first offense for speeding in a school zone results in a fine of $150; a second offense carries a mandatory fine of $300. Speeding in a school zone is a serious offense because conviction will add points to your driving record, which could lead to the suspension of your driver’s license.
Why Should I Hire An Attorney?
While you can almost always choose to represent yourself when you are accused of a traffic violation, hiring an attorney is a really good idea because there is a lot at stake. First, if you are found guilty of speeding in a school zone, your insurance rates will go up – in some cases, dramatically. If that happens, you’ll probably wish that you had saved money and handled things the right way to begin with by hiring a professional.
Second, a conviction will add points to your driving record, which may put you dangerously close to having your license suspended. If your license is suspended, you may not be able to get to work or handle your family obligations. The reasonable fees you spend on an attorney at this point may save you thousands of dollars and a lot of aggravation in the long run.
