I received a notice of suspension of my drivers license for having 10 or more parking tickets.

Asked 9 months ago - Chicago, IL

I checked the city of Chicago's website and noticed that I had 11 unpaid parking tickets. My license is going to be suspended on November 28. I was wondering if I pay to get under ten tickets will the Secretary of State rescind the suspension or if I will have to pay them in full?
