We believe that criminal defendants deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and that everyone deserves a second chance. If you have been charged with DUI, our experienced DUI defense attorneys can help you understand the charges being brought against you and build a strong legal defense to fight these charges.

Illinois DUI Law Regarding Drugs

According to Illinois law, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of any substance or combination of substances which renders you "incapable of safely driving." Even prescription medications such as hydrocodone, methadone, oxycodone, and Xanax can lead to DUI charges if those medications affect your ability to follow traffic laws and drive safely.

Illicit drugs like cocaine, heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), and methamphetamine fall under Illinois's zero-tolerance policy. You can be charged with DUI for driving with any trace of an illegal drug or drugs in your body. If a police officer sees a driver drifting between lanes, weaving through traffic, abruptly speeding up and slowing down, or otherwise driving erratically, he or she may suspect the individual of impaired driving. You can be arrested for DUI even if you do not fail a field sobriety test or breathalyzer, as long as other indications of impairment are evident.
