I was reading your article about 2 or more citations being a mandatory appearance. I am in a similar situation, I was issued a citation for speeding, and for not having proof of insurance in my vehicle. I wasn't given the option for an I Bond. I was asked for a certain amount of cash, a bond card, or my drivers license. I didn't have the cash, and didn't know what a Bond card was, so reluctantly I gave my drivers license. Is there anyway that I can show that I have insurance, and pay the speeding ticket before my court date. I travel often for business and can not afford to be with out my drivers license for a month and a half, which is when my court date has been set. If you know of an alternative avenue it would be greatly appreciated.
Depending on when you got the citations, you can first contact the Police Department or District that issued the citations. Their Court Officer may be able to tell you if your license has already been sent to the County's Circuit Clerk's office. If it has, call or contact the State's Attorney's Office in the County where you received the citations. They will be able to advise you of any alternate method of taking care of your citations. At the least, you should be able to exchange cash or another type of bond for your Driver's License. Just let them know that you need it for travel purposes.
I hope that information is helpful.
