Thank you for your patience.
Based on the information you've provided, it seems clear that this was, in fact, a traffic violation and NOT a municipal ordinance violation. Unfortunately, it would be better for you if it were the other way around.
The State of Illinois permits an expungement of a municipal ordinance when the person, "not having previously been convicted of any criminal offense or municipal ordinance violation, charged with a violation of a municipal ordinance or a felony or misdemeanor, is acquitted or released without being convicted." So, if this were a municipal ordinance violation, it seems you would be eligible for an expungement.
Unfortunately, Illinois, like most states, does not permit a person to have tickets removed from their record after a conviction.
