Cost For Speeding And Other Tickets Going Up

Posted by wlpo on September 15, 2010

Speeders in Illinois have to dig even deeper in their pockets to pay the ticket.

As of Wednesday, fines for speeding will go up nearly 50 dollars.  District 17 Trooper Craig Graham says tickets are going up also for traffic tickets like improper lane usage and driving with a taillight out.

Graham says the increased tickets won’t necessarily mean a cash flow increase with his department.  He says municipalities where the tickets are issued get most of the money.

State officials say most fines on traffic violations haven’t increased in Illinois since 1992.
