Traffic Violations

If your ticket is marked "YOU MUST APPEAR IN COURT," your appearance is required. Go to court on the date given on your ticket.

Examples of Must Appear Offenses are Driving Under the Influence, Driving While License Revoked or Suspended, Reckless Driving, Operation of Uninsured Motor Vehicle, or Personal Injury Accident among others.

If your ticket is NOT marked "YOU MUST APPEAR IN COURT," you have several options.

  1. You may plead guilty and pay applicable fees. A conviction is reported to the Secretary of State. We do not accept PERSONAL CHECKS. Please remit a cashiers check or money order. Mail your payment to Logan County Circuit Clerk, PO Box 158, Lincoln, IL 62656.

    Speeding 1-20 mph over the limit $120
    Speeding 21-30 mph over the limit $140
    Speeding 31+ mph over the limit MUST APPEAR
    All other non court appearance offenses $120
    Seat belt offense $60



  2. You may plead guilty and ask the Court for Court Supervision. In order to receive Court Supervision, you MUST appear in Court on the Court date stated on your ticket.

    If you appear in Court and you are granted Court Supervision, the offense will be reported to the Secretary of State as such and will not be reflected as a conviction for the traffic offense you are charged with.

    The Judge will impose the amount you will be required to pay for your traffic citation if he grants Court Supervision. Come prepared to pay.

    Personal checks are not accepted. We accept MasterCard, Visa, cash, cashier's check or money order. Traffic Court is held at the Logan County Courthouse, 601 Broadway Street, 2nd floor Courtroom. Appear in Court on the date stated on your ticket. For directions, click here.
