According to the 2013 DUI Illinois Fact Book, 92% of drivers arrested in Illinois for driving under the influence (DUI) in 2011 no longer had the privilege of driving after their arrest. Under Illinois DUI law (625 ILCS 5/11-501), driving under the influence of alcohol, intoxicating compounds, or a combination of drugs and alcohol is strictly prohibited.
If you are suspected of DUI in Illinois, your defense strategy begins the moment you are signaled to stop. Every action you take could either help or hurt your case, so it helps to know what is required of you as opposed to what may be requested. Requests are voluntary, but requirements are necessary.
One of the best actions you can take during a DUI arrest is to be polite and say as little as possible. If you are facing DUI charges, contact an experienced Arlington Heights, Illinois DUI defense attorney to help you fight for your rights.
