DUI Fatalities In Illinois And Kane County Statistics

DUI Arrests By Kane County Sheriff’s Department

Today, the Huffington Post featured an article by Reboot Illinois which discussed alcohol-impaired driving fatalities in Illinois, as well as various statistics, including some from the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM).

Two excerpts from the article:

While the number of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities in Illinois has decreased 37.8 percent between 2002 and 2012 — in large part because of increased awareness, tougher punishments and legislative action — drunk driving remains a serious problem in Illinois, though more severe in some parts of the state than others.


Of all the people who died in Illinois motor vehicle crashes, 35 percent lost their lives in crashes involving a drunk driver, that is more than 350 deaths each year,” said Rita Kreslin, Executive Director of AAIM. “Departments that make more DUI arrests and who have effective DUI enforcement in their communities are saving lives by preventing impaired driving crashes and crash fatalities.”

The article lists the top eight Illinois sheriff’s departments with the most DUI arrests in 2013.  Kane County’s Sheriff’s Office was listed, with 60 arrests for its 85 officers, and a corresponding Arrest rate/officer of .78.
