Study Shows Which Illinois Suburbs Have Most DUI Arrests

A recent study released by the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) lists Rockford with 727 DUI arrests, the highest number of any Illinois city in 2010, outside of Chicago. Rockford was followed by Naperville with 671 drunk driving arrests and Elgin with 410 arrests. The top three were closely followed by Waukegan, Carol Stream, Elmhurst, and Aurora.

The study provides an insight into the police enforcement in each of these areas. The Executive Director of AAIM stated, “There are several individuals making more DUI arrests per year than many entire police departments in Illinois.”

The study shows a drop in Chicago DUI arrests from 4,341 in 2009 to 3,695 in 2010. Illinois State Police DUI arrests increased from 9,996 in 2009 to 10,734 in 2010.

Cook County Sheriff’s Police had the highest number of DUI arrests of any county with 515, followed by Lake County, DeKalb County, and Will County.
