Q

What does it mean to have the Individual Bond Section on your ticket marked on an Illinois traffic ticket?


A

In Illinois when a person has received a traffic ticket or is arrested, they are required to post a bail, or a bond. This is a surety that the person will come to court.

An Illinois country clerk office explains the that if you were ticketed for a traffic offense then one needs to post a driver's license, cash bail, bail bond certificate or individual bond or if you may be released on Notice to Appear or Promise to Comply.

In the event you fail to appear in Court or answer the charges on the date set for your court appearance, or any date to which the case has been continued, or you do not submit a written plea of guilty to the Clerk at least three (3) court days before that date, you hereby consent to the entry of a judgment of conviction against you in the amount of the applicable fine, penalties and costs. The cash bail or other security deposited will be used the fine, penalties and costs.

If you are an Illinois Driver and you fail to pay in full any judgment imposed, a notice will be sent to the Illinois Secretary of State and your driver's license will not be renewed, re-issued or reclassified until full payment, including statutory interest.

The types of bonds in IL for traffic tickets include the following plus here is information on what happens with that type of bond if you fail to appear:

1. Full Cash Bond -

Any cash deposited will be applied toward the judgment.

2. 10% Cash Back - A Judgment [Conviction] may be entered for the FULL amount of the bond and/or the Court may issue a warrant for your arrest. Any cash deposited will be applied toward the judgment.

3. Illinois Driver's License - A Judgment [Conviction] may be entered against you for the fine, penalties and costs as provided in the "Notice of Consent for Entry of Judgment [Conviction]," OR your driving privileges may be suspended as a result of the conviction entered and/or the Court may issue a warrant for your arrest.

4. Bond Card -

No Court Appearance Required: A Judgment [Conviction] may be entered against you for the fine, penalties and costs as provided in the "Notice of Consent for Entry of Judgment [Conviction]."Your issuing bond card company will be billed for the FULL amount of the judgment and your card will be forwarded to them upon payment.

5. Bond deposited on multiple tickets arising from the same incident - [See front side for Ticket Number] Bond posted on one ticket may cover all tickets. Bond conditions remain in force until all tickets have been resolved.

6. No Bond - You were unable to post bond with the arresting officer at the time this ticket was issued.

7. Notice to Appear - A Judgment [Conviction] may be entered against you for the fine, penalties and costs as provided in the "Notice of Consent for Entry of Judgment [Conviction)," OR the Court may issue a warrant for your arrest.

8. Promise to Comply - [Out of state drivers only] A notice of suspension of your driving privileges will be sent to the State that issued your driver's license OR a Judgment [Conviction] may be entered against you for the fine, penalties and costs as provided in the "Notice of Consent for Entry of Judgment [Conviction)" and/or the Court may issue a warrant for your arrest.

9. Individual or Personal Recognizance Bond - A Judgment [Conviction] may be entered against you for the fine, penalties and costs as provided in the "Notice of Consent for Entry of Judgment [Conviction],"OR a bond forfeiture judgment may be entered for the FULL amount of the bond and/or the Court may issue a warrant for your arrest. Any subsequent bond posted by you will be used to satisfy any bond forfeiture judgment entered against you.

So if you received a traffic ticket in Illinois and had the individual bond section checked it means that you were let go without giving a bond it appears and thus if you are convicted of the offense you owe the full fine amount.If you fail to appear in court for the offense you the court could issue a warrant for your arrest.

To find out more about the types of bonds the state of Illinois allows, including the individual bond, contact the Illinois Secretary of State (SOS) and/or the court listed on your ticket. The court clerk could likely give you more detailed information about bond types the state allows for and what each type means.
