Underage DUI Lawyer in Chicago

Crackdown on Under-21 Drinking and Driving

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that teens have a significantly greater risk of death in alcohol related accidents than other age groups. This and other related information have led to a zero tolerance policy in this state regarding underage drinking and driving.

In the State of Illinois, the minimum legal drinking age is 21 years old. Any violation of this law in combination with driving a motorized vehicle can result in immediate and harsh penalties. DUI convictions can become part of a person's permanent criminal record. If you or a loved one have been charged with underage DUI, it is vital that a Chicago DUI attorney be retained so that your rights and privileges are protected.

Suspension of Driver's License

Any arrest for a traffic violation which results in a trace of alcohol being found in your body will result in a 3 months suspension of your driving privileges. Refusing to submit to testing for alcohol in your system will result in a 6 month suspension. In the case of a second offense, your privileges will be suspended for 12 months or 24 months if you refuse to be tested. Those that are under 18 years of age will have to do a mandatory remedial education course for drivers and have to undergo a new driver's license examination in order to be issued a license.

Penalties for Underage DUI Convictions

If you are convicted of an underage DUI, you may face the following penalties:

  • Serve up to one year in jail and pay a fine of up to $2,500.
  • You can be ordered to take part in a youthful intoxicated driver's program.
  • Your driving privileges will be suspended for at least two years
  • Multiple DUI convictions will bring about stiffer penalties

In certain circumstances, you may be issued a restricted license to be used only during certain times of the day or night.
