You need to be very aware of the effects of drugs on your mental and physical capacity before you get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after their use. And drugs and alcohol in combination can be particularly debilitating for drivers. Illinois has very strict laws and penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) cases. The rise in serious injury and death on Illinois roadways have led to increased and aggressive prosecution, with the threat of incarceration, steep fines, and loss of driving privileges.

Defending DUI Drug Charges in Chicago

If you are driving in a manner that causes police officers to pull you over on suspicion of DUI, you likely will be asked to leave your car to perform one or more sobriety tests to check your mental and physical impairment. They may ask you also to submit to blood alcohol test (BAC) or urine testing to see if you had drugs in your system during the time you were behind the wheel. With a blood alcohol level of .08, you can be charged with DUI. You can face DUI drugs charges for having drugs in your system, such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, and any type of controlled substance. Drugs in your possession or in the vehicle could bring added charges and penalties. If you are convicted on DUI drugs you could:
