SPEEDING IN CONSTRUCTION ZONES VIOLATIONS IN RACINE COUNTY ON THE RISE FOR ILLINOIS AND WISCONSIN DRIVERS
Racine County represents a large corridor between the Illnois border north of Kenosha almost through to Milwaukee. Many Illinois and Wisconsin drivers are routinely cited for speeding violations in Racine County. The recent Foxconn Enterprises business contract has created a demand for upgrades and improvements to the Racine County infrastructure, specifically Interstate 94 and surrounding roads.

WHAT CAN A TRAFFIC OR SPEEDING TICKET ATTORNEY LICENSED IN ILLINOIS AND WISCOSIN DO FOR AN ILLINOIS DRIVER WITH A RACINE COUNTY CONSTRUCTION ZONE TICKET OR CITATION?
I have appeared regularly on behalf of Illinois drivers in Racine County Wisconsin for many years before the highway construction project and have handled construction zone violations now and will continue to do so into the future. I am often able to secure an amended, non-construction zone violation that protects the Illinois driver from the reporting of a conviction to the Illinois Secretary of State and their insurance company. With proper authorization I can also appear alone on behalf of my Illinois clients. My appearance saves the cost of missing work and potentially spending hours to attend traffic court in Racine County Wisconsin with uncertain results.
