Tips for Bloomingdale Municipal Court
If you are arrested in the City of Bloomingdale, then you will likely be required to appear in the Bloomingdale Municipal Court. Bloomingdale typically holds court bi-weekly, on every other Tuesday. Here are some tips to help you with your Bloomingdale Municipal Court appearance:
- Bloomingdale has a very active police force, as I-16 cuts through part of the city limits. One of the most common citations given by the Bloomingdale Police is for speeding. If you are caught speeding excessively (or if you are given a Super Speeder ticket), then it is to your benefit to go ahead and do a defensive driving course BEFORE coming to court. If you do, Bloomingdale will often reduce the speed and fine to help save you money.
- There is a solicitor in Bloomingdale Municipal Court, and he will typically give great deference to what the arresting officer wants to do with a case. If you get to court early, you may be able to talk to the arresting officer and see if they will help you work out a favorable plea agreement.
- In recent years, Bloomingdale has attracted attention for being a “speed trap.” This little town’s police force hands out lots of tickets and makes lots of arrests. Court starts at 2:00 p.m., but if you don’t get there early, you could be stuck sitting there for hours. Also, if you have an attorney representing you, they will take your case first. Always have an attorney with you!
