A history of moonshine and what we’ve learned

Three and a half hours south of Joliet is the unincorporated community of Moonshine Illinois. Known for its name and sole building—a restaurant—this little district has become famous in its own right. There is some speculation as to how the name came to be. When many people hear the name they will think of alcohol.

What is moonshine?

How a DUI affects a driver’s license

You probably rely on your car for many things. It is your means of getting to work, taking kids to school and activities, and shopping for the family. When it comes to a DUI, many factors could get your license suspended or revoked. Here are some questions you may have about the status of your license after a DUI:

Repeat DUI offenders must understand their legal rights

Have you been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol in the past? If so, you know that this has a way of turning your life upside down.

Despite the fact that you may have made this mistake before, it doesn't mean you'll necessarily avoid the same in the future. It's possible that you could become a repeat offender, in which case you'll be worried about a more serious punishment.

Avoiding jail time for DUI in Illinois

When you're out on the town, enjoying time with friends or family members, the last thing you want to worry about is going to jail. Since there are laws in Illinois and all other states governing how much alcohol can be in a person's bloodstream while operating a motor vehicle, you may want to think ahead and plan accordingly so that you're social occasion does not become a bad memory due to legal problems.
