Have you heard about the "Arrive Alive" tour? A realistic impaired and distracted driving simulator is making rounds through the nation in this important tour. Just this week, the tour made a stop at Illinois Wesleyan University so that young people in the area can safely experience the effect of alcohol and drugs on one's ability to drive.
When you head for work, school, to run errands, go to the doctor or simply enjoy a nice drive in Illinois, you never know when you will encounter a drunk driver. Despite efforts from law enforcement agencies, drunk driving is still a problem throughout DuPage County. So, what should you do if you encounter a drunk driver?
Drunk driving is a problem that affects the roads of DuPage County and the rest of Illinois on a daily basis. Law enforcement officials do everything they can to identify and remove suspected drunk drivers from the roads but as long as people continue to make bad decisions this will continue to be a problem. If you've lost a loved one due to a drunk driving accident we have tips for you on how to cope with the loss.
It's been more than 20 years since Illinois enacted its drunk driving law. That's the law that makes it illegal for a person to operate a motor vehicle if their blood alcohol level is 0.08 percent or higher. As we noted in a previous post, that law is credited by many with reducing the number of wrongful deaths caused by drunk drivers.
