The leaves are changing, the summer heat has left the area and there are numerous festivals that are taking place every weekend. Fall is a wonderful time of year………….
It is an easy decision to attend a festival, have a few beers and think you’re fine to drive home because you haven’t had a beer in a few hours and you have been enjoying food at the festival all day.
The Illinois Secretary of State has stated that the average DUI offender is:
