Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (625 ILCS 5/11-501), operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or any type of intoxicating substance is illegal. The penalties you could be facing depend on your breath alcohol content (BAC) level or the amount of drugs in your system, along with the circumstances surrounding your traffic stop.
