How much is the legal alcohol limit in Illinois?

There are three different legal limits for blood alcohol content (BAC) in Illinois. If the driver is under 21 years old, the legal limit is .00%, as Illinois is a zero tolerance state. For adults 21 and over, the legal limit is .08%. For commercial drivers, the limit is .04%. Depending on a person’s height, weight, and other factors, the amount of alcohol consumed will equal different percentages of BAC, so it’s safest to abstain from drinking if you know you will be driving. If you have been drinking and need to get somewhere, take public transportation, get a ride from someone else, or call a cab.
