What is a statutory summary suspension?

If you are like most people in Illinois, you likely know that you could be at risk of losing your right to drive if you are ever charged with a drunk driving offense. However, you may not fully understand the processes involved with this penalty. There is one way that a person might lose driving privileges after being arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and that is called the statutory summary suspension. 

What is the one-leg stand test?

If you have ever wondered exactly what happens when a law enforcement officer asks a driver to take a field sobriety test in Illinois, you are not alone. Most people know that these tests in some form attempt to evaluate a person's balance or other functions but may not fully understand exactly what these tests can determine and how they must be administered.

Who needs to use an ignition interlock device?

If you have been arrested for and charged with suspected driving under the influence in Illinois, you will not doubt want to learn as much as you can about the defense process as well as what penalties you may experience if you are ultimately convicted of a DUI offense. One of the things that many people in your position are concerned about is maintaining their ability to drive. Certainly this can affect many things in your life especially if you rely on your vehicle to get you to and from work or school.

Basics of the field sobriety tests

You may have wondered what really happens when a person who has been pulled over by police is suspected of drunk driving. One of the things officers generally do is request that the driver complete certain tasks. Known as field sobriety tests, these tasks are part of a standard drunk driving investigation. 

Did police have probable cause to arrest you for DUI?

An arrest for driving under the influence doesn't always happen at an Illinois DUI checkpoint. In fact, law enforcement makes very few arrests at those roadblocks. Instead, police may pull over a driver for another reason, such as a missing headlight or a traffic violation, and notice signs of intoxication during their interactions with the driver.
