Autumn shaping up: Enjoy it, drivers, but be vigilant

Autumn in Illinois can be just about as compelling as it is anywhere else in the United States, with the annual transition it marks providing for dramatic scene-changing moments.

Repeat DUI offender in Illinois highlights larger judicial issue

In an earlier post this month we reported on the fact that a 59-year-old woman was charged with driving under the influence after being involved in several accidents where a Illinois state trooper and seven others were injured.

Seven other individuals were also injured in the crash.

Car accident in Illinois kills 1on Interstate 255

Despite the best efforts of the Illinois State Police to espouse the virtues of safe driving, accidents still happen. That was the case in St. Clair County on Sept. 1 when a crossover car accident killed one out-of-state woman and left her husband clinging to life. So far, police have not filed any formal charges in the accident, which involved two other vehicles. It does not appear that anyone else was injured in the crash.

DUI enforcement: federal law would mandate national uniformity

Illinois is among a strong minority of states with a law on the books mandating that even a first-time convicted drunk driver install an ignition interlock device on every vehicle that he or she drives.
