Illinois Drugged Driving Laws

When someone thinks of a DUI the first thought they have is drinking and driving, however, that’s not always the case. Driving under the influence of drugs is another form of DUI. Illinois Drug DUI law has three important sections:

  • 625 ILCS 5/11-501(a)(3) makes it illegal to drive under the influence of any intoxicating compound or combination of intoxicating compounds to a degree that renders the person incapable of driving safely. 
  • 625 ILCS 5/11-501(a)(4) prohibits driving under the influence of any other drug or combination of drugs to a degree that renders the person incapable of driving safely.
  • 625 ILCS 5/11-501(a)(6) prohibits driving if there is any amount of a drug, substance, or compound in the person’s breath, blood, other bodily substance, or urine resulting from the unlawful use or consumption of a controlled substance listed in the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, an intoxicating compound listed in the Use of Intoxicating Compounds Act, or methamphetamine as listed in the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act.
