a friend went to court in Dupage county recently and the new court "tax" is $285!!! you have to pay the "tax" even if you win. total BS if you ask me.

if you loose on top of the fine you pay $285
if you win you pay just the $285

Cook county is still $135 but I am guessing they will follow increase theres to this level in the future.

make sure you carry your insurance card with you because it could/will cost you $285 if you don't because no insurance card is a must appear.
