What constitutes DUI under Illinois law?

In Illinois, the offense of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) requires a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher. If you are driving with a BAC between .05 and .08 percent, you may still be cited for a DUI in Chicago if your behavior suggests you are impaired.

A Chicago DUI attorney can assist you if you have been arrested for drunk driving. Illinois imposes serious administrative and criminal penalties for drivers who get behind the wheel under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If you are pulled over and your BAC is over .08 or you refuse testing, the officer will suspend your license. The suspension may not take effect immediately, however. Rather, you may be given a receipt that allows you to continue driving for 45 days to allow you time and an opportunity to challenge the arrest and suspension.

What if it’s my first DUI?

In Illinois, a first-time DUI is a Class A Misdemeanor that will result in suspension of driving privileges for six months. If you refuse to submit to a chemical test and it is your first offense, you will be facing a mandatory 12-month driver’s license suspension. In addition, a first time DUI is punishable by up to one year in jail and up to a $2,500 fine, typically with a minimum payment requirement of $500. These fine amounts do not include court costs and other charges associated with completing terms of sentence (e.g., an alcohol awareness course).

What if it’s my second DUI?

A second DUI is also a Class A Misdemeanor that will result in suspension of driving privileges for 12 months, with no eligibility for interim driving relief. If you refuse to submit to testing, the consequences for a second offense will result in suspension of driving privileges for three years with no eligibility for driving relief. Any subsequent offense after the second offense will be considered a felony, and the penalties including loss of driving privileges, fines and, in some cases, prison terms will vary accordingly. A Chicago DUI attorney can be vital to defending against a DUI charge and may help reduce, or even eliminate prison terms and monetary fines.

Arrested or charged with a DUI or DWI?

Driving under the influence (DUI) means operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or drugs that have impaired a person's mental or motor skills. In most states, a person will be considered "impaired" if they exhibit objective signs of intoxication, or if they have a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. Many states also have zero tolerance laws for drivers under 21, where any non-zero BAC level constitutes an offense. Most states also hold commercial drivers, such as truck drivers, to a more rigorous standard.

Law enforcement officers use a variety of tests, such as field sobriety tests and breathalyzers, to determine whether a driver is impaired by alcohol. In some jurisdictions, you have a right to refuse some of these tests, but in other jurisdictions you may be required to submit to them. It is important to know the law in your particular state, and to consult a DUI attorney if you are facing charges.

DUI lawyers are criminal defense attorneys focused on representing clients facing DUI/DWI/OWI charges. Each state has different DUI laws. An experienced DUI lawyer will be able to evaluate the case against you and present your options on how to best limit the impact of the charges against you. DUI lawyers also handle related cases such as driver's license reinstatement and DUI record expungement.


Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC): The percentage of alcohol in a person's blood.

Field Sobriety Test: Any one of several roadside tests that can be used to determine whether a driver is impaired.
