I am on a 90 day supervision for passing an unloading school bus and got an ordinance ticket for drinking underage. My lawyer said I cannot get a ticket within the 90 days, but does it only apply to traffic tickets? Will I still get my license taken away?
Talk to a lawyer in your area, it's important to retain someone to protect your license and record. A lot of Counties have a program for underage drinking that will result in a dismissal if you complete an alchohol program. It's possible your supervision could get revoked for the ordinance violation. Some State's Attorneys would do so, others would not. Just another reason you need to retain a lawyer.
If you are convicted or receive supervision it is reported to Secretary of State. Your license is suspended for 3-6 months, even if nothing happens on your super. So super is the least of your problems. Many towns use these tickets as a revenue raiser and have diversion programs. Pay the dough and the ticket goes away.
Unlikely. Once you pay an ordinance ticket I do not see it affecting your driving priviledges.
