Speeding​ ​Offenses​ ​in​ ​Yorkville,​ ​Illinois Normally,​ ​speeding​ ​is​ ​a​ ​petty​ ​offense.​ ​Like​ ​with​ ​most​ ​traffic​ ​offenses​ ​in​ ​Yorkville​,​ ​court supervision​ ​is​ ​an​ ​option​ ​with​ ​a​ ​fine​ ​and​ ​possible​ ​traffic​ ​school​ ​(traffic​ ​school​ ​is​ ​mandatory​ ​for offenders​ ​under​ ​21).​ ​If,​ ​however,​ ​you​ ​are​ ​speeding​ ​more​ ​than​ ​25​ ​miles​ ​per​ ​hour​ ​over​ ​the​ ​posted speed​ ​limit,​ ​your​ ​case​ ​is​ ​a​ ​misdemeanor.​ ​Additionally,​ ​depending​ ​on​ ​where​ ​you​ ​are​ ​speeding, other​ ​mandatory​ ​consequences​ ​may​ ​apply.

Speeding​ ​26​ ​to​ ​34​ ​mph​ ​over​ ​the​ ​posted​ ​speed​ ​limit: A​ ​recent​ ​change​ ​in​ ​the​ ​law​ ​makes​ ​it​ ​a​ ​Class​ ​B​ ​misdemeanor​ ​if​ ​you​ ​are​ ​speeding​ ​in​ ​this​ ​range. Furthermore,​ ​the​ ​law​ ​does​ ​not​ ​allow​ ​a​ ​sentence​ ​of​ ​court​ ​supervision,​ ​so​ ​speeding​ ​26-24​ ​over the​ ​limit​ ​is​ ​a​ ​mandatory​ ​misdemeanor​ ​conviction.​ ​That​ ​means​ ​a​ ​plea​ ​or​ ​finding​ ​of​ ​guilty​ ​will result​ ​in​ ​a​ ​conviction​ ​that​ ​will​ ​appear​ ​both​ ​on​ ​your​ ​driving​ ​record​ ​and​ ​on​ ​your​ ​criminal​ ​record. Depending​ ​on​ ​your​ ​driving​ ​record,​ ​it​ ​may​ ​be​ ​possible​ ​to​ ​get​ ​the​ ​charge​ ​reduced​ ​to​ ​a​ ​petty offense.

Speeding​ ​35+​ ​mph​ ​over​ ​the​ ​posted​ ​speed​ ​limit: A​ ​Class​ ​A​ ​misdemeanor.​ ​Like​ ​speeding​ ​26-34​ ​over​ ​the​ ​limit,​ ​court​ ​supervision​ ​is​ ​not​ ​an​ ​option.​ ​If you​ ​plead​ ​guilty​ ​or​ ​are​ ​found​ ​guilty​ ​it​ ​will​ ​result​ ​in​ ​a​ ​conviction​ ​on​ ​your​ ​driving​ ​and​ ​criminal records.

Speeding​ ​in​ ​a​ ​Yorkville​ ​School​ ​Zone: Although​ ​this​ ​offense​ ​is​ ​still​ ​a​ ​Petty​ ​Offense,​ ​conviction​ ​is​ ​mandatory,​ ​as​ ​is​ ​a​ ​$250​ ​minimum fine.​ ​The​ ​only​ ​way​ ​to​ ​avoid​ ​these​ ​consequences​ ​is​ ​for​ ​the​ ​prosecutor​ ​to​ ​amend​ ​the​ ​charge.
