Interesting -- Naperville is only the 5th largest city in Illinois (after Chicago, Aurora, Rockford and Joliet), so it clearly has more DUI arrests per capita than Aurora, Rockford, or Joliet. Does that mean there is a higher proportion of people driving drunk in Naperville than in the other towns? You wouldn't think so. Naperville law enforcement is probably just a lot more aggressive. BTW, I have heard that Naperville prosecutes DUI cases as a city ordinance violation (rather than a state statute violation), meaning the fines go to the city rather than the state.

The real troublemakers other than DUI drunks, are the g.d. texters. I hate them. Get behind them while they text and you'll notice they drive stupid. Honk your horn at them and they act offended and give you the finger. Frankly I don't care if they kill themselves- if they really want to text and drive. Just don't kill me or my family. Report texters drivers to police.

Drivesmart.biz is located in the Suburbs of Chicago, and is the only organization in the US to provide such a service. Our Mission is simple: we want to provide awareness to drivers that may be legally intoxicated and aid them in making a responsible decision.

There are too many cheap and unreliable breathalyzers out there. Drivesmart only uses FDA cleared and DOT approved breathalyzers. These breathalyzers are recommended by the Illinois State Police and used by all Police Departments in Illinois.

Being arrested for drunk driving is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a person. It can have a tremendous impact on your life. The reality is that a DUI conviction in Illinois will stay on your record forever.
