As your Lawyer, Todd can advise you of proper actions to take when stopped by Law Enforcement. If a driver refuses to submit to, or fails to complete chemical testing and/or fails testing, then a statutory summary suspension provides for the automatic suspension of driving privileges of a driver arrested for DUI. Failure of chemical testing means a driver has a BAC of .08 or more, a THC of either 5 nanograms or more per milliliter of whole blood or 10 nanograms or more per milliliter of other bodily substance, or a trace of other drugs.
As a local Traffic and DUI Lawyer who specializes in representing drivers charged with DUI, we can assist drivers in requesting a judicial hearing to challenge a statutory summary suspension or statutory summary revocation within 90 days after the notice date. The hearing must be conducted within 30 days of the request or on the first court date scheduled to consider the criminal charges
As noted in the Illinois Secretary of State's DUI Fact Book: “Driving Under the Influence” is defined as operating a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol, other drugs, including cannabis (marijuana) prescribed for medical purposes, or intoxicating compounds and methamphetamine. In Illinois, drivers are legally considered to be under the influence if they have a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or more, have a tetrahydrocannabinol (cannabis) concentration (THC) of either 5 nanograms or more per milliliter of whole blood or 10 nanograms or more per milliliter of other bodily substance, have used any other controlled substance, or are impaired by medication.
