Parking tickets are expensive and inconvenient. Not only do they take time out of your day but they take money out of your wallet. However, your objection to a parking ticket in Illinois might be more than your frustration. You may actually believe you were wrongly ticketed. If you live or are driving in Illinois and you received a parking ticket that you dispute the validity of, you have every right to take it to court and defend yourself.
If you want to dispute a parking ticket, the instructions are usually printed on the ticket itself. If you can’t find them there, you can look up the instructions on how to dispute a ticket on the DMV website. Alternatively, you can call the city court or city clerk and ask them how to go about disputing your ticket. You should act quickly, however, because you will only have a certain number of days in which you can file your petition. For the consequences can come if you do not meet this deadline, up to and including license suspension. So make sure to act quickly, and consider hiring an attorney. An attorney will be able to help craft the most persuasive defense given the evidence and circumstances involved in your case.
Disputing your case is a decision that you have to make on your own with the advice of an attorney. However, there are many benefits of disputing any ticket you might get. For one, if you win you won’t have those points added to your license. Additionally, you won’t have to pay any fines associated with the citation and you can also avoid license suspension if that’s something that you were facing. Moreover, you get to exercise your right as a citizen to present your case and to argue your defense in court.
Some people find the prospect of hiring an attorney intimidating. However, attorneys are there to help you. They are experts in legal matters that the average citizen does not know enough about to adequately defend themselves. Hiring an attorney should not be a scary process. All you need to do is make sure the attorney has the experience you need in order to defend your specific kind of case. That’s where some of the frustration can come in because it’s difficult for the average citizen to know what to look for in a traffic attorney in Illinois.
