A man was charged with aggravated driving under the influence after a fatal car crash on the Eisenhower Expressway took the lives of two west suburban women last Saturday morning.
Let’s be straight with it, no one should every be hurt or killed by a drunk driver. There should be no easier choice for anyone than between taking a life or taking a taxi. Yet, according to some of the latest statistics published by the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office, just in 2011, there were 38,704, DUI arrests state-wide.
Although thousands get arrested, not every DUI arrest leads to a conviction. People who are charged with DUI’s often hire lawyers; so should their victims.
