In 2009, an astounding 911 people died in car accidents. 42% of those deaths were caused by drivers driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. The DUI laws in Illinois are similar to other states. A DUI is legally determined by administering a blood or breath test to discover the driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC). If the driver has a BAC of .08 or above, they are charged with a DUI. If the driver has a BAC of .16, they are charged with an aggravated DUI, and the penalties are increased. A driver under the age of 21 has a legal BAC limit of .02.

A driver facing their first DUI conviction in Illinois faces a minimum of losing their driving privileges for 1 full year. They also face up to 1 year of prison time. The maximum fine is $2,000. If the conviction is for an aggravated DUI, the penalties are increased dramatically. Along with the normal one-year loss of driving privileges, the driver may have to spend up to 12 years in prison. Maximum fines can reach up to $25,000.

For a second DUI offense within 20 years in Illinois, the driver will lose their driving privileges for 5 years. There is a mandatory 5-day jail term, with a maximum of 1 year. If the minimum term is enforced, then there is a possibility that the court will allow 240 hours of community service to be completed instead. The maximum fine is $2,500.

How long does a DUI remain in Illinois on your record?

The state of Illinois treats DUIs very seriously, and DUI convictions have a zero-tolerance policy. This means that this offense will remain on the record indefinitely if you are accused of driving under the influence.
