DUIs in Illinois

If you are under 21 or a school bus driver, the state of Illinois will not let you consume a drop of alcohol and then drive.

If you are over 21, you are considered impaired at .08.

How easy is it to get to .08? Well, a 170-lb man can get impaired, having four drinks in an hour. Out with friends, at the golf club or baseball game — hot and thirsty after hard work, those drinks go down quicker than you think.

It Was Only Beer

Remember, a can of beer or a glass of wine has the same alcohol content as a shot of the hard stuff. If you are drinking beer from a pitcher, it is wise to pace yourself.
