Elgin Illinois Construction Zone Ticket Attorney
Experienced Construction Zone Tickets Lawyer in Kane County
In Illinois, construction zone speeding is more serious that a regular speeding ticket. The first offense carries with it a $375 fine and multiple offenses can bring the fine up to $1000 and cost you your driver’s license for 90 days. For commercial drivers, loss of a CDL can also seriously jeopardize their career. If you have been given a construction zone ticket, your first inclination may be just to pay it and move on. However, it may cost you more than just the fine and possible license suspension. Points will also be added to your driving record, causing your insurance rates to skyrocket.
Construction zone tickets are worth fighting, and you can be successful with the right defense strategy. At the Law Offices of Brian J. Mirandola, one of my areas of focus is defending Illinois drivers with traffic violations. I am a Kane County construction zone ticket attorney with over 15 years of experience practicing in the Chicagoland area. I spent seven years as assistant county prosecutor, and I have seen all types of traffic cases come through the courts. My work both for the county and in private practice gives me unique insights on how to effectively contest construction zone violations and other types of traffic tickets.
Defending a Construction Zone Ticket
Being pulled over and cited for a construction zone violation does not automatically mean you are guilty. There may be circumstances that call into question your culpability. For example, did you receive the ticket personally or was it mailed to you after being caught on video tape? If it was the latter, it must be mailed within 14 business days of the alleged incident. Also, was the construction zone speed limit sign clearly marked, or was it difficult to read due to vandalism or being covered by snow? These and several other questions will be asked to determine the specifics of your case and help you put together the best possible strategy to try to have the charges reduced or dropped.
