Like many other states, Illinois has a strict, zero-tolerance law for minors. Essentially, this means that drivers under the age of 21 are not permitted to have any level of alcohol in their system. As such, blowing even just a 0.01 on a breathalyzer could result in criminal and administrative consequences. Learn more about them, including how an experienced attorney can help you fight back, in the following sections.
When one is pulled over for suspicion of driving drunk, they may be asked to submit to a breathalyzer test. While, ultimately, you do have the right to refuse this test, doing so could increase your odds of experiencing an arrest and the subsequent penalties. Submit and blow a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that registers over the limit and you will be arrested anyway.
Being arrested for allegedly driving under the influence (DUI) can have serious criminal consequences, such as jail time and hefty fines, but did you know there are non-criminal penalties as well? These penalties, otherwise known as collateral consequences, are not imposed by the court but they can still have a significant impact on your life.
