Illinois has serious penalties for driving under the influence

Choosing to operate a motor vehicle after drinking increases the risk of a collision or crash. It is also against the law, and Illinois law enforcement on the roads actively seek to catch and prosecute those impaired behind the wheel. Typically, anyone driving in a suspicious manner could wind up stopped by law enforcement for a field sobriety test.

Can you save your license when facing an Illinois DUI charge?

Allegations of driving under the influence (DUI) in Illinois are serious criminal charges. Sometimes, people make mistakes that result in a DUI arrest. Other times, issues with the roadside sobriety test or even the performance of a Breathalyzer test could result in the wrongful arrest of someone who was not, in fact, impaired.

Breathalyzer tests don't say for sure if a driver is drunk

Those who are stopped while driving on Illinois or other state roads could be asked to take a Breathalyzer test. Regardless of the result of the test, a person could be taken into custody and charged with drunk or impaired driving. It is important to note that the result of the test is not the sole piece of evidence that gets a person charged or convicted.
