Depends on whether it is in your favor or not. If it is in your favor, pay it and don't say anything. It could very well be that the officer was trying to do you a favor and lower the fine. Usually they write a lower speed on your part. If it was truly an error, he wrote 25mph zone instead of 35mph zone, I'd contest it, there is more money and possibly more points in a larger difference. And document the issue carefully. The speed zones are well known and to show the error should be pretty obvious.

yes because if a police officer is off their shift and are speeding they can get a ticket anyway.

Is it possible to get out of a speeding ticket if you already admitted guilt to the officer - in Dupage County Illinois?

Generally, if you got a speeding ticket, you're not going to get out of it. If you admitted guilt to the officer, you're almost guaranteed not to get out of it. If you go to court, and the officer shows up (if he doesn't, you may get out of it, but that's not guaranteed) and says "he admitted that he was speeding", you're toast. Short story, pay the ticket and don't speed next time :)
