    Default Reducing a Excessive Speeding Ticket in a Construction Zone

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Illinois

    I got a speeding ticket for 83 in a 45 mph construction zone on the expressway issued by Illinois state police considered as a class A misdemeanor. Court will be held at the Addison courthouse (I was told that dupage county doesnít play around with violations like this from my friend who lives in Dupage county). The ticket has a 2500 dollar method of release and my drivers license was taken away as bond. I was tired and trying to get home and I didnít mean to speed. Is it possible to reduce this as I already have 1 speeding ticket for 24 over (not in a construction zone) and 1 improper lane change violation on my record and I donít want to serve the jail time associated with this. I will pay the fines and I got no problem with drivers license supervision. I would like to reduce it to a speeding ticket and do the traffic school and get court supervision if possible.

    I'm not familiar with this particular court, but a lot of Illinois courts aren't cake walks. I would recommend you talk to an attorney with a charge of that magnitude.
    Intent isn't required for traffic offenses. You are in serious doodoo.
