If you were to survey all licensed drivers in Illinois, many would say they have, at some point in their driving careers, been stopped by a police officer in traffic, for suspected speeding. Nowadays, many towns have installed cameras that photograph the license plate of a vehicle that passes the connected motion sensor at or above a particular speed. At other times, a police officer might pull someone over, and the situation may end with a mere warning to slow down or escalate into a much more serious situation. This is why many people choose to fight tickets for traffic violations.
Do you know you can go to jail for driving at excessive speeds? Misdemeanor speeding typically involves tickets that list drivers' speeds at 35 miles per hour or more over a posted limit. A conviction can lead to nearly 12 months behind bars. In fact, many traffic violations prompt severe penalties, including suspension or revocation of your Illinois driver's license.
In normal, everyday conversation, the words "suspension" and "revocation" often mean the same thing. At the very least, they are similes, or words that have slightly different meanings but can be substituted for each other.
