Hi

I live in Nashivllle Tenneese, last week I got speeding ticket at Johnson county vienna city illionis for 42 miles over speed. cop clicked the speed at 107 in 65 zone I24 . Also gave me another ticket for staying in left lane for long time. Acutally I didnt know whether the speed is that hign , its a big suv . May be I went over 100 for 1 or 2 miles but my bad luck I got clicked on that time. I paid $200 cash on the spot to cop and he gave me court appearance.

This is my first offense. I have a clear driving history till now. I am worried about the consequences of this ticket. Please advice if any come across these kind of ticket

Thanks

107 in a 65?? How are you not in jail? I drive fast but that is crazy! I am also confused about the giving a cop 200 cash....I didn't think they wre allowed to take any money, only licenses or bond cards?

I know that excessive speeding in Illinois is not taken lightly. Not sure how it will affect your record since you are in Nashville....it depends on whether or not there is a reciprocal agreement between Tennessee and Illinois.
Good Luck!

What's that movie where they get stopped for speeding in a giant RV? They tell the cop that the ladder on the back might have affected the cop's radar. Maybe you could try that line?

I thought they had moved Johnson County out of Chicagoland, down to southern Illinois?
