Can I be arrested for DUI if I am on my own land or other private property?
Yes. Illinois law allows for you to be arrested for DUI on private property, including your own. Specifically, 625 ILCS 5/11‑201 states as follows: “The provisions of Articles IV and V of this Chapter shall apply upon highways and elsewhere throughout the State (emphasis added).” Article V contains the DUI statute. “[T]he words ‘elsewhere throughout the State’ encompass all areas of the State, public or private.” People v. Guynn, 33 Ill. App. 3d 736, 739 (3d Dist. 1975).
