BAC - Blood Alcohol Content

Chicago DUI Attorney

When a driver is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and stopped by the police, they will be given a Breathalyzer, to measure their breath alcohol content (BrAC). In Illinois, there are several different BAC levels that will lead to a DUI arrest. Any driver over 21 who has a BAC higher than .08% will be charged with DUI and taken to jail. Drivers under 21 face Illinois' zero tolerance policy and any trace of alcohol will lead to an arrest. Drivers with a commercial license with a BAC above 0.04% will be arrested and face losing their license. The penalties for a DUI include suspension of your license, fines, jail time and a criminal record.

Penalties for Drunk Driving in Illinois

There are additional factors that can increase the penalties for a DUI conviction. Having a passenger under 16 with you in the car when you are stopped can result in a jail sentence and a fine up to $2500. Causing or being involved in an accident that results physical damage and/or bodily harm will result in a felony charge and imprisonment. Breathalyzer field sobriety tests are not always reliable. There is ample evidence that the BAC results obtained on site could be inaccurate and challenging the calibration and use of the Breathalyzer may get such evidence dismissed.
