    Speeding 40 mph or more over the limit was already a Class A misdemeanor. See 625 ILCS 5/11-601.5. All such offenses carry a maximum penalty of up to one year in jail and a fine of $2,500.00.

    Previously, a defendant court receive court supervision for this offense. Supervision is a special type of sentence that results in a dismissal of the charge without a conviction provided the defendant complies with the terms and conditions of the sentence. While the charge is dismissed, the record of supervision remains until it is expunged.

    The new law disallows supervision for all speeding tickets of 40 mph or more over the limit. Thus, the minimum sentence would be a conviction, most likely in a sentence such as conditional discharge or probation.

    A conviction causes the Secretary of State to impose points a someone’s driver’s license. But supervision is not available for speeding 40 mph or more over the limit. This type of speeding ticket may threaten to suspend a persons’ driving privileges.

    Driver’s license points determine the length of a suspension. In some cases, too many points can result in a revoked license.

    The Secretary of State will suspend a person’s license according to the following rules:

    0 through 14 points – no action.

    15 through 44 points – 2 month suspension.

    45 through 74 points – 3 month suspension.

    75 through 89 points – 6 month suspension.

    90 through 99 points – 9 month suspension.

    100 through 109 points – 12 month suspension.

    110 or more points – one year revocation.

    See Title 92 of the Illinois Administrative Code, Section 1040.30.

    Both a ticket for 30 mph over and 40 mph over the limit result in the imposition of 50 points. See Section 1040.20.

    Because the law does not allow the court to sentence a defendant to supervision for speeding 40 mph or more over the limit, this is a serious offense and an attorney should be consulted.
