How does alcohol end up in your breath?

A number that you will hear time and time again associated with alleged DUI offenses in Fox Lake is .08. That is the near-universal blood-alcohol limit assigned to intoxication. That the measurement of the alcohol content of your blood, however, is what determines whether you are driving under the influence might seem confusing, as law enforcement officials do not test your blood after stopping you for suspicion of DUI. Rather, they test your breath. 

Is it always legal to turn right at a red light?

Making a right turn at an intersection while the traffic light is red is common in everyday driving. Yet sometimes turning right on a red light is not legal. Conducting an illegal turn can pose legal problems for a driver down the road, particularly if the turn results in an auto accident that causes injury. To maintain safe driving, an Illinois resident should know the ways state law forbids right turns on a red light.

Field sobriety test accuracy rates

Anyone in Illinois who has been charged with a driving under the influence offense might wonder how in the world they might defend themselves against the charge. One of the things that every driver should know is that the tests used by officers before an arrest is made are not completely accurate.
