The DUI laws in Illinois use the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) standard, along with age, to measure and determine at which point a driver is considered to be under the influence. If the driver is under the age of 21, their BAC is not to exceed .00%. If the driver is over the age of 21, then their BAC is not to exceed .08%

The maximum legal BAC for operating a motor vehicle in CA is .08 for persons age 21 or older. Comment: In California, 0.08% is called the "discretionary limit". This means that with a BAC reading of less than 0.08% the officer can decide, "at his discretion" if you were impaired or not. At 0.08% and above, he must arrest you for driving under the influence - that decision is no longer his (or hers). The discretionary limit is 0.00% for drivers under 21 years of age.
