Municipal Court and Illinois Licensed Drivers Knowing the Repercussions of Missouri Traffic and Criminal Offenses

In Missouri there are over 90 municipalities in St. Louis County and many have their own court that handle various traffic and criminal offenses. Missouri and Illinois have very different driver’s license statues and regulations. The ramifications of a traffic and even some criminal convictions in Missouri for an Illinois licensed driver can be significant. For instance, many Illinois licensed drivers do not realize that incurring three traffic convictions within a calendar year can result in a suspension of your Illinois license. If you are under 21, Illinois only allows a driver to incur merely two traffic convictions within a calendar year. This includes any out of state convictions, including Missouri. Illinois’ system is very different from Missouri, wherein a point system is used. This point system can be confusing and misleading to many Illinois licensed drivers.

Not only can traffic convictions cause many issues with your Illinois Driver’s License, there are many criminal charges that can have a significant effect on your license as well. Specifically, alcohol and drug related offenses can result in substantial license suspensions and revocations. For example, a charge of Minor in Possession can result in a possible three month suspension of your Illinois Driver’s License.
