Illinois unlike a lot of other states, recognizes out of state traffic violations. Illinois will receive a report of your conviction and mark it on your driving record. Illinois doesn't utilize a points system in the traditional sense applied in other states, but a conviction may affect your insurance rates, and potentially can affect your driving privileges if you have other convictions either now or in the near future for traffic violations. I highly recommend retaining counsel in the state where you received the ticket for help. They may be able to do a great deal for you.
You should consider fighting the ticket. It sounds like there are some potential issues in your case, for instance, how did he effectively write two tickets at once, observe both defendants violate the law and adequately make a proper assessment of the situation. Hire an attorney and fight it
Best of luck. If I have answered all your questions please press accept and provide positive feedback, if not, and you have additional questions then please ask and I will respond promptly.
