Traffic courts have more cases than any other court. Each year, hundreds of thousands of drivers appear before a judge in different traffic courts throughout Illinois. But also, some drivers want to avoid a court appearance by paying a traffic ticket fine online or through the mail. Unfortunately, paying a traffic ticket fine won't solve all the problems. If the driver wants to pay a ticket fine and skip the court appearance, they automatically plead guilty to a traffic citation. 


Furthermore, a certain number of points is added to their driving record for each conviction. The number of points depends on the severity of an infraction. Once an Illinois driver has at least three convictions for moving violations within a year, the Secretary of State will suspend their driver's license for at least two months. The length of suspension depends on how many points have been accumulated on their three traffic violation convictions.  

  • 15 to 44 points - 2-month license suspension

  • 45 to 74 points - 3-month license suspension

  • 75 to 89 points - 6-month license suspension

  • 90 to 99 points - 9-month license suspension

  • 100 to 109 points - 12-month license suspension

  • 110+ points - License Revocation

Here are a few examples of the Illinois Points System for Traffic Offenses:

  • No stop lights - 5 points

  • Speeding 1-10 MPH above limit – 5 points

  • Improper traffic lane usage - 20 points

  • Texting while driving a commercial motor vehicle - 20 points

  • Failure to give stop or turn signal - 15 points

  • Aggravated speeding in a construction zone (35 mph or more) - 55 points

There are also moving violations to which no points are added. For example, DUI, driving during a suspension or revocation, or driving uninsured can result in license suspension after the first offense. Aside from a license suspension and points, you might face hefty fines, traffic school, higher insurance premiums, and the possible booting or towing of your vehicle.
