Now, more than ever before, Illinois drivers need to be wary of how fast they drive on the roadways. At certain speeds a traffic ticket is no longer a petty offense, but instead becomes a more serious misdemeanor. A driver who is traveling between 26 and 35 mph over the speed limit may face charges for a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine of $1,500 for each offense. A driver who is traveling 35 mph or more over the posted speed limit may face charges for a Class A misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 364 days in jail and a fine of $2,500 for each offense.
Currently, there are some situations where aggravated speeding is an offense that is not eligible for supervision whether it is charged as a Class A or Class B misdemeanor.
