Do You Know The Illinois Blood Alcohol Concentration Limit?

In Illinois, a driver can be charged with DUI (driving under the influence) if his or her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is measured by law enforcement at .08 percent or higher. In some cases, a driver can be charged with DUI or a similar crime based on other criteria such as impairment related to drugs.

The relationship between BAC and Illinois DUI laws is a critical one. The DUI code tends to change each year, and the current law will have a big effect on what happens in your case, especially with regard to penalties.

If you are facing DUI charges, you need a lawyer with an excellent understanding of BAC and the law — and the science that is essential to BAC testing. You need a lawyer with the knowledge and experience to defend you effectively. Your driver’s license and your freedom may be at stake.
