Receiving a traffic ticket in Cicero Town, there are many decisions a driver may have to look into. One of the most important decisions to consider is whether or not it is beneficial for the driver to hire an attorney.

In general, a speeding conviction of 86 mph in a speeding zone of 65 mph can carry a fine up to $393.00 which is payable to the court, there also is a $300.00 minimum penalty fee to the Department of Motor Vehicles, and possible insurance cost increases.

It is also recommended that you leave your cell phones and other electronics at home or turned off. The court is a place of respect, so always remember to act cordial. You should bring any court notices that you have. And remember to arrive on time; it is better to arrive before time rather than later.
