Stay Informed: Misdemeanor Traffic Offenses Are on Your Record!

Most people believe that offenses such as driving without a valid license (625 ILCS 5/6-101) or driving on a suspended license (625 ILCS 5/6-303) are simple traffic violations that will not appear on a criminal background check. Unfortunately, however, the opposite is true: most traffic-related offenses are actually misdemeanors and far more serious than most presume.

Misdemeanor traffic citations are easily accessible to potential employers. If a job requires you to drive a vehicle as part of your employment, prior misdemeanor traffic offenses can prevent you from being hired. XpungeChicago, a division of the Law Offices of M. Fakhoury, can expunge or seal traffic-related misdemeanors from your criminal record. Visit us at for a free consultation and confidential case review. 847-920-4540
